How about “I Mopped The Bathroom Floor With My Kids Bath Towels” day? I sure do, and my little ones love celebrating unconventional holidays as well. Today is “I Finished My Math Book A Month Early” day, which of course means sliced apples dipped in this easy salted caramel sauce recipe. I’m going to make a double batch so that I have extra to stir into my coffee this week, plus some to drizzle on the secret fudgy brownies in my freezer.
Worried that you won’t know what to do with a full batch of caramel sauce? Well, it’s delicious stirred into yogurt with a little fruit, poured over slow-cooker “baked” apples, or frozen in cute silicone ice cube trays (like these or these) to make individual candies. Or just eaten straight of the spoon . . . ask me how I know.
Place cream, honey (or sucanat/coconut sugar) and butter in a small pot. Bring to a boil over medium/high heat, whisking occasionally.
Reduce heat to medium and allow to boil gently for 7-12 minutes. Coconut sugar is more prone to burning so I keep the cooking time around seven minutes and check it often. Honey, on the other hand, takes the longest to develop a caramel flavor – about 12 minutes, sometimes longer.
Stir in the salt and then place in the fridge to cool. Warm to room temperature before serving.
