I’ve been trying REALLY, REALLY trying hard to eat healthier.
And when I say ‘HEALTHIER’ I don’t mean dieting or counting calories.
I just mean ‘HEALTHIER’ like trying to eat fresh foods, even organic if possible, and the most difficult part is I’m watching my sugar intake.
Oh, how I L-O-V-E sweets.
They truly are my downfall. But I’ve been good.
Except for today.
Today I decided to treat myself to something I haven’t had since way last fall.
Yummy, buttery, creamy…
With just a hint of salt.
Of course, I did drizzle it on apples.
They are healthy, right?
This caramel sauce pairs perfectly with tart apples like granny smith, or drizzle it on a store bought cheesecake and you’ve got dessert!
And don’t get me started on ice cream.
Oh, what I wouldn’t give to have a bowl of vanilla topped with a BIG spoonful of my caramel sauce right now.
Maybe another day.
Today I’m going to take a break from gardening and enjoy my kind of caramel apples.
Here’s the recipe!
I hope you enjoy it is as much as I do!
Salted Caramel Sauce
- 1 cup Light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1 tbsp Half and Half
- 4 tbsp Butter
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
Add sugar, heavy whipped cream, half and half and butter to a medium saucepan. Whisk over medium-low heat until mixture starts to thicken (about 5 minutes). Add vanilla and salt. Keep whisking for another 2 min. Remove from heat. Pour into a glass container. Let cool. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Blessings and hugs,
