I overcooked my apples and I saw in a grocery store Apple Caramel Syrup and thought I could do this and tried it. I have a baking apple tree and so they are tart apples. I was just trying something new and different. Can use as Ice Cream Topping or Pancake/Waffle Syrup.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups apples (with juice)
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 12 cup Karo syrup
  • 14-12 cup Mrs Richardson's caramel topping (I am sure a person could use reg. caramels and melt them in the kettle while cooking too)


  1. I happened to over cook my apples after I peeled and cored them so they were to soft to even try to get them out and drain them.
  2. (I had a canner full of apples.) So I mashed them with the juice, (left some lumps) and came up with this recipe.
  3. You can use it as Ice cream Topping, or Pancake/waffle syrup.
  4. I put the apple mixture in a kettle and heated.
  5. I added the sugar, Karo Syrup,& Mrs.
  6. Richards Caramel Topping and brought to a boil for a couple minutes and put into pint jars and process them for 30 minutes to make sure they sealed.

Yummy! Appley and get both tastes. It's a bit lumpy...more like a fruit topping. Just don't expect it to be smooth like caramel.

DELICIOUS! I cant believe more people haven't rated this recipe. I used regular caramels and melted in a double boiler. It tastes just like a caramel apple. I canned 4 batches to give as gifts.

This is a great recipe. It was easy to make. Everyone that has tried it loves it. I poured it over pound cake and sprinkled powdered sugar over it for a church dinner. Everyone loved it. Will definitely make this recipe again. Thanks
