Honey Caramel Apple Dip

Last fall I was so excited to share with you my new discover of honey caramel apples. They are so yummy and made entirely without sugar (using honey as the sweetener). Then for Christmas I shared these honey caramel candies. What a great treat to have on hand when sugar candy is all around. In honor of another fall and another holiday season ushering in, I'm going to share this very easy and very delicious honey caramel apple dip. I made this for my kids for a snack the other day and they loved it. It's so good with all those freshly picked apples we have around. Honey caramel is definitely one of my newly found favorite no-processed-sugar treats.

*Serves 6

1-1/2 Cups + 2 Tbsp. heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Cup honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Apples, cored and cut into wedges

In a large, heavy bottom saucepan, heat 1-1/2 cups of the cream and salt over medium high heat just until small bubbles begin to form on the surface (barely before a simmer). Then stir in the honey and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to keep the mixture at a simmer and stir often with a wooden spoon. Simmer for 8-10 minutes (8 minutes for a runnier caramel, 10 minutes for thicker). If you have a candy thermometer, until it registers 225 to 230 degrees. Remove saucepan from heat.

In a separate pan or in the microwave, heat the remaining 2 Tbsp. cream. Stir warm cream and vanilla into hot caramel. Transfer caramel to a serving bowl and set aside to cool completely. Serve at room temperature with apple wedges.
