You are going to fall in love with fall-inspired apple cider caramel sauce. Drizzle on cakes, ice cream, or even use as a dip. No matter what, you can’t go wrong!
I am officially calling it. Fall 2016 is the year of apple cider and caramel. Gone are the days of pumpkin spice everything, which, let’s be honest, has kind of gone out of control the past couple of years. Not going to lie though, I still enjoy the occasional pumpkin spice latte. But nothing can beat apple cider. And caramel. And especially apple cider caramel. And oh, look at that, here we are with a recipe for apple cider caramel.
In case you are wondering, no, I am not planning on working on my subtly or anything crazy like that.
I’ve been dreaming of this apple cider caramel (and another recipe I hope to share with you soon) the moment I first saw apple cider for sale at the local farm. At first I wondered if I should try to find out their amazing apple cider doughnut recipe and then had the idea to infuse apple cider into about a dozen other things and got started right away. So, I guess this is an official warning. There are more apple cider recipes in the works in the CND kitchen!
If you wanted to use this recipe for candy apples, I recommend cooking it a different method. I prefer to add all the ingredients together in a small saucepan and boil for approximately 10 minutes, or until the mixture is a dark amber color and visibly thicker. Keep a close eye on it and use a heavy bottomed saucepan to prevent burning!
