Ready In 3 Simple Steps
I am all for buying prepared foods when I need to. However, when I do, I cringe when I look at the ingredient label!!! All the more reason to try making a few favorites from scratch.
Last year I taught a caramel apple dipping class using homemade caramel sauce. I will never serve store bought again!! It is so rich and smooth with none of the additives. I dare you to make it and not just eat it by the spoon full!!!
I like cutting the apple into slices and pour the sauce over them. I just don’t do well eating the caramel apple off a stick. The caramel sauce will keep in the refrigerator or the freezer. I had some in the freezer from last Fall and it was still amazing, so it keeps well for a long time 🙂
- 1 cup butter
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 8 oz. sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup Karo syrup
- 1 t. vanilla
- In a medium saucepan mix all ingredients except the vanilla.
- Cook on medium heat until it starts to boil.
- Once it starts to boil, turn it down and simmer until semi-firm ball stage (when a little of the caramel dropped into cold water forms a semi-firm ball- or use a candy thermometer); stir in vanilla.
