Do you love for your kids to eat fruit and veggies but have a hard time getting them to eat them on a regular basis? Well kids get bored of the same old foods served up the same old way, just like we do. If you have older kids..it’s even harder to encourage them to eat their fruits and veggies..that is.. without a little enticing.
So this weekend I made some Caramel Apple Dip Recipe out of part of my Moms Caramel Candy recipe and adapted it to my liking (it called for white sugar) I prefer Brown for something like this. After looking around the internet too, I found that it’s pretty much made the same just about everywhere you look..with very basic ingredients. So enjoy and serve up this deelish sauce with Apples for a special treat…now and then.
Caramel Apple Dip
- 1 cup Brown Sugar
- 4 tbls. Butter
- 1 tbls. white Karo Syrup
- 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
- A container to put your Caramel Apple Dip into
This makes a very small batch, so if you want to store and save more…just double, triple etc..
Put all in ingredients into a saucepan and heat up over medium heat.
Bring to a low boil and boil until it starts to thicken. About 3-4 minutes…Do not boil until real thick or it will turn into a hard crack candy rather than a smooth creamy consistency.
Remove from the stove and add Vanilla
Stir and that’s it…YUM!
Use right away or pour into a container. It will be hot, hot, hot so be careful if you use right away. Give a minute or two to cool down.
The Caramel Apple Dip will thicken upon standing..You can put into frig for later…if it thickens more than you like just put into the microwave for about 30 seconds to soften.
Enjoy getting your kids to eat there apples with this special dip..oh and you too! Now and then
