Equipment

6 Quart Crock Pot filled halfway with water

Wide Mouth Mason Jars- one for each dip

Bowls for the toppings

Long skewers


Dips

1 Cup each of:

Chocolate Chips

Butterscotch Chips

White Chocolate

- Plus 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil per cup of chips


1 Bag 10.8 oz of Caramels (Werther's Soft Caramels are recommended!)

- Plus 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream plus a pinch of fine sea salt and a dash of vanilla


Toppings

Sprinkles

Crushed pretzels

Crushed Oreo's


An assortment of Apples


Directions


Dips


Caramel- In a saucepan combine the unwrapped caramels with 1/3 a cup of heavy whipping cream and 2 tablespoons of water. Stirring frequently, melt the caramels over medium-low heat until smooth. Take off heat and mix in the salt and vanilla. Transfer to a Mason Jar.


Chips- In a microwave safe bowl, melt each type of chip in 30 second intervals with the 2 teaspoons of oil per cup. Stir between intervals and heat until smooth. Transfer to a mason jar.


Place your Mason jars full of dips into the crockpot. Keep the crock pot on high, and your dips should be good for the duration of the party!


Prepping Apples


Slice the apples into wedges and immerse them in a saltwater bath for 5-10 minutes. The ratio for this water is 1 cup of room temperature water to 1/2 teaspoon of salt, make however much you need. This will prevent them from browning. After soaking, drain the apples in a colander and rinse them with cold water. Keep them refrigerated until you are ready to use them, and pat dry before serving.


Toppings


Place whichever toppings you wish to use into bowls. That's it!



Offer as many or as few dips and toppings as you wish. Your guests will enjoy making their custom creations! We were inspired by this blog post to create the bar, check out the article for more suggestions and tips!
