Caramel Sauce (For Dipping Apples)

Total Time

Cook 15 mins

I got this recipe from a magazine many years ago. The tubs of caramel sauce made for dipping your apples into are expensive (at least for this mom) and this was a homemade version. Our family loves it.

Taste was pretty good but the consistency was cloying and grainy...even after 45+ min stirring constantly on a low heat. There has got to be an easier way....with a more even and creamy consistency.
