Ready In: 50 minutes


  • 1 cup Marzetti® Old Fashioned Caramel Dip
  • Crust Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup, firmly packed brown sugar
  • 8 tbsp (1 stick), cut into small pieces unsalted butter
  • Filling Ingredients
  • 2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced into 1/4-inch pieces


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan.

For the crust, combine all crust ingredients in a mixing bowl and combine until crumbly and butter pieces are no longer visible. Press the mixture on bottom of prepared pan. Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.

For the filling, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese until light and creamy; add Marzetti Caramel Dip and mix until smooth. On low speed, mix in flour; add egg and vanilla and mix just until blended. Pour cream cheese mixture over baked crust. Arrange apple slices and press them into top of cream cheese layer. Bake 20-25 minutes. Allow bars to cool to room temperature. Cover and chill until firm. Before serving, spread additional dip over top of bars. Cut and serve. Store covered in the refrigerator.
