Caramel Apple Sauce

Note:   It is fall.    Something about this time of year just screams apples and caramel to me.      Last week I went to the Fresh Market and bought some of the most delicious apples.    After eating the first one I knew I had to make some caramel sauce to dip them in and enjoy while watching football.     I will admit that when I ran out of apples I baked a cake just so I had something to drizzle the sauce on as well.
Caramel Apple Sauce

3/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/3 cup butter
2/3 cup whipping cream

Melt the butter in a saucepan.   Add the corn syrup and mix.     Stir in the sugars.      Cook over medium heat until the mixture comes to a full boil.       Remove from the heat and let cool for a couple of minutes.    (Just enough time to slice up a few apples.)    Stir in the whipping cream.     Pour into a container and store in the refrigerator.
