Can we just talk about awesome Fall is? I am just loving the beautiful sunrises and sunsets this season. I am beginning to fell like fall is my new favorite season. Summer is a close second, but after sipping pumpkin lattes and enjoying the cool, crisp air and football, I have to say that I am in heaven. Now if it was just cool enough to wear a sweater.... we are not quite there yet, but I know it is coming.
Today I wanted to share with you a really easy method on how to make caramel for apples from scratch. Caramel and apples just go together any time of year and I recently made this sauce for a snack the other evening.
We have been watching a lot of football (and baseball recently) and there always has to be TV snacks. Fruit is always a good idea and sometimes it just needs a little sidekick to really elevate it.
This caramel sauce also makes a good glaze to pour over bread that are so popular this time of year. It is also good on ice cream and brownie sundaes, just sayin'!
I am a big caramel fan and have shared a few fun recipes on this site. For more fun caramel recipes, you may want to try:
