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…

Carmel Sauce.

With just a hint of salt.

Of course, I did drizzle it on apples.

They are healthy, right?

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!

  1. Yum! This looks and sounds absolutely delicious! I’m thinking about trying my hand at salted caramels this holiday season for gift giving but this sauce looks amazing. We all love it in my house. The fact that it is homemade makes it much more special.

    1. Thank you, Patti! Salted Caramels sound like the PERFECT gift! I also made up this scrumptious caramel sauce one year for a ‘special’ treat for family and friends! They, like I, loved it on everything from ice cream to warm apple pie, and my favorite, popcorn!!!
