I LOVE caramel dip in the fall for my apples! What I don't love is the high prices of the store version and the added corn syrup and other ickies. This recipe is so good. The butter really brings out the caramel flavor. I also like that this recipe is so easy to make. A few minutes on the stove and you have a wonderful fall treat. Here's what you need:
Homemade Caramel Sauce
- 1/4 c. butter
- 1/8 - 1/4 c. heavy cream (depends on how thin you want your sauce to be)
- 1/2 c. brown or turbinado sugar
Combine all ingredients on the stove top and heat on a medium heat, constantly stirring. If you are going to use turbinado sugar you will want to grind it up first before you add it otherwise it will be slightly gritty.
Cook the mixture until it starts to boil, keep stirring constantly and let it boil for 2 minutes before you remove from heat. Let it cool slightly before you serve. This amount makes about enough dip for 2 or 3 apples. This would also be great as a caramel topping or an ice cream topping!
