To celebrate the changing of the seasons, I like to give my family, friends and neighbors something yummy to fill their bellies and hopefully make everyone forget that summer flew by in the blink of an eye and is now a distant memory.
This caramel dip recipe I found years ago and has never let me down. It is soooo simple and 100 times better than anything you could ever find in the store, plus it's made from the heart! This dip can be used on everything from apples to ice cream to cinnamon rolls or just drink it straight from the jar...haha, just kidding (sort of).
I used clear cellophane to wrap up the jar of caramel dip and apples and tied them with some festive fall ribbons. I also printed out some "Happy Fall" tags and glued them onto a brown cardstock. Following the recipe, I've attached the free printable so you can print the tags too.
Something so simple can mean so much...try it, you won't be disappointed! Happy Fall Y'all!!!
Homemade Caramel Dip
- 1 cup granulated white sugar
- 6 Tablespoons salted butter, cut into 6 pieces
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon salt
1. Heat sugar in medium saucepan over medium heat, stir constantly. Sugar
will form clumps and begin to melt into a thick brown liquid, continue to
stir being careful not to burn.
2. Once sugar is completely melted, stir in butter immediately. Stir butter
until completely melted, 1-2 minutes.
3. Very slowly stir in the heavy cream. Be careful as the mixture will bubble
rapidly and splatter when added.
4. Allow the mixture to boil for 1 minute. It will rise as it boils.
5. Remove from heat and add salt. Allow to cool before using.
** each batch makes two 8oz jars. I usually triple my recipe to get 6 jars,
