I love caramel dip for apples and recently discovered that it isn’t all that difficult to make from scratch. The recipe is below however if you’d rather just buy a tub of it at the grocery store Marzetti Old Fashioned Carmel Dip is awesome and if you click here you can print a coupon for $1 off!
I usually have heavy cream left over after making White Chicken Chili or Fettuccine Alfredo and since there isn’t a whole lot it can be used for, I usually make homemade carmel sauce with what’s left. Here’s the recipe.
Homemade Carmel Sauce
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
pinch of salt
2 Tbs corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 stick butter
- Combine sugar, water, salt and corn syrup in a sauce pan and cook over medium high heat, stirring occasionally until the mixture turns the color of iced tea. The process will look something like this:
3. Add vanilla and butter, then stir until melted.
4. Transfer to a bowl to cool.
Of course this makes a delicious ice cream topping but we love to dip apples in it!
