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.
