Fruit with Sugar Free Caramel Sauce

Sharing is caring!

This is a sponsored post for Werther’s Sugar Free Caramels written by yours truly.

I have always had a sweet tooth. When I was a kid, I always enjoyed going to my grandmother’s house because she always had a big dish of caramels in her living room. They were always in a crystal candy dish. It was not child-proof, but that was never an issue, because I was always careful around the candy dish.

Fast forward to now, and I still have that sweet tooth. Every day I treat myself to a little something sweet to satisfy my craving.

I was so happy to hear that Werther’s, makers of that wonderful caramel, now has a new line of sugar free Werther’s Originals. I was a little hesitant because I have tried sugar free candy before and they do not always taste great.

So I had to try them.

They tasted really good and do not taste sugar free. The creamy, sweet caramel flavor is just like the caramels I remember having when I was a kid, and each one only has 8 calories, 3 carbs and zero sugar per piece.

Werther’s Original Sugar Free Candies are available in four flavors – Classic Caramel, Caramel Apple, Caramel Coffee and Caramel Cinnamon. My personal favorite is the Classic Caramel, probably because it takes me back to days with my grandmother.

I like to have one after a meal because it is like a sweet taste of dessert, without a lot of additional sugar and calories.

Another reason I like Werther’s is that I can share them with my Dad.  He is 90 years young and is a diabetic, so he really watches what he eats. I love the fact that I can share these with my dad!

Sometimes I make a little dessert with the candies, so I am sharing the recipe with you.

Fruit with Sugar Free Caramel Sauce

fresh fruit, cut up in pieces

1 bag (2.75 oz) Werther’s Sugar Free Candies

3 tablespoons whipping cream

1 teaspoon butter

Crush the caramels, I used a meat tenderizer to do this. On low heat, melt teaspoon butter. Add caramels and whipping cream. Stir until fully melted.

Now comes the fun part. Remove from heat and pour melted caramel over fresh fruit. I used bananas, but it works well with strawberries and kiwi too. This makes enough for 4 small servings. It tastes just like the sweet taste I enjoyed with my grandmother.

OK seriously I never would have thought of crushing up hard candy and melting it! So Smart!

Have you seen the recipe circulating with the hollowed out apple filled with caramel (kind of reverse caramel apple)? If I were going to use these caramels to fill the apples, I'd just melt them and not add the whipping cream or butter, correct?

Oooooh Linda that sounds really good! Yum! I think you would have to add a little cream for the caramels to melt properly, but you could try.

This is great! Thanks for the info. I'm diabetic and always looking for a way to get a sweet treat in on occassion. I bet apples dipped in this would be good too.

We're having a party at Tumbleweed Contessa - What'd You Do This Weekend? This would be a great addition to our party. Hope you can come.
