If you’ll be home on Halloween—either dispensing candy or hunkering down—you need a Halloween treat that isn’t candy.

Thanks to our friends at EatWisconsinCheese.com for this recipe.

It’s easy to make with purchased caramel sauce (or if you’re hard core, your homemade sauce).

The caramel dip is a bit indulgent, but you can:

  • Substitute plain or vanilla Greek yogurt for the cream and cream cheese.
  • Serve the lowest-calorie dippers: apple slices, carrots, celery and pretzel sticks.
