Thick, creamy and sweet! This apple dip is a yummy treat during apple season. The brown sugar gives it "caramel" flavor hint and the pecans add a nice little crunch. Serve with slices of your favorite apple and it's almost like eating a deconstructed caramel apple.

Yummy ways to mix it up:
- Another great addition would be to add some toffee bits to the dip. These can be difficult to find, because I use them in my pumpkin cheesecake and they're not readily available at all stores.
- Dippping pretzels in this would also be delicious.
- Instead of apples, pears would be great too.
- Feel free to leave out the pecans-but the subtle crunch is nice.
