For the last couple of months, I’ve been trying REALLY, REALLY hard to eat healthier.
And when I say ‘HEALTHY’ I don’t mean dieting or counting calories.
I just mean ‘HEALTHY’ like trying to eat fresh foods, even organic if possible, and definitely watching my sugar intake.
If you’re trying to do the same then you know how difficult a lifestyle change like this can be. Especially when it comes to my sweet tooth.
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,
