Homemade caramel sauce can be served on anything from fresh fruit to ice cream, and it lasts for several weeks covered in the refrigerator. Mix up a batch to use as the secret ingredient in this sweet and seasonal Caramel Apple Cream Cheese Dip, great for any tailgate or party!

Caramel Sauce

1 1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup water

1 1/4 cup whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla (preferably paste, but extract will do)

Using a 3-4 quart saucepan, level sugar at the bottom and pour water over top.  Do NOT stir, but rather swirl the pan to mix. Cook over low heat from 7-10 minutes, until the sugar dissolves.

Increase heat to medium and boil until candy thermometer reads 350 degrees (about 5 to 7 minutes), swirling the pan rather than stirring.

Turn the heat off and slowly add the cream and vanilla.

**NOTE this will steam and bubble vigorously!

The caramel will almost completely turn into a solid.  Never fear! Simmer over low heat, stirring with a whisk, until caramel dissolves and becomes a smooth sauce.

Caramel Apple Cream Cheese Dip

8 ounces cream cheese

Caramel sauce (about 3/4 cup)

Toffee Bits

Sliced apples, graham crackers and/or pretzels

Please cream cheese on your serving dish.  Pour caramel sauce over the top and sprinkle with toffee bits.

Serve with sliced apples, graham crackers or pretzels.
