Caramel Sauce just has to be part of fall with all of the apples being in season but there’s no need to buy it from the store when you have this easy homemade Caramel Sauce recipe to try instead.
Easy Homemade Caramel Sauce
I LOVE caramel dip in the fall for my apples! What I don’t love are 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:
Easy Homemade Caramel Sauce Recipe
What You Need:
- 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
How to Make Easy Homemade Caramel Sauce
Combine all ingredients on the stove top and heat on a medium heat, constantly stirring. If you are going to use turbinado sugar (turbinado sugar is raw sugar) you will want to grind it up first before you add it otherwise it will be slightly gritty. As long as you get it up to temperature though this shouldn’t be an issue.

Cook the mixture until it starts to boil, keep stirring constantly and let it boil for 2 minutes before you remove from heat. Make sure it gets up to about 200 degrees during the boiling time. You will need a Candy Thermometer to keep track of the temperature. Getting the caramel sauce up to the correct temp will help it get nice and thick and make a good topping. 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 on these Made From Scratch Brownies or an ice cream topping for Homemade Ice Cream.
