A Southern Soul | Caramel Sauce

I always need something for my guy as an after school snack and since it’s apple season, this is going to be a special treat for him.

Caramel Sauce
This recipe makes enough that I’ll have some left over to serve as a little snack before dinner so that Mr. A Southern Soul can have a little something to much on with his pretzels.

A Southern Soul | Caramel Dip
Hold on though…this sauce is wonderful served over ice cream, apple pie, a brownie or popcorn.  Really, who am I kidding, caramel sauce is good on just about anything!

Caramel Sauce

1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup half and half
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

  • Combine sugar and water in a medium size sauce pan on medium heat, until sugar has dissolved.
  • Increase heat to medium low and cook mixture until it turns a light amber color.
  • Take off of heat and slowly whisk in half and half.  NOTE:  use a long handled whisk or spoon since the syrup is very hot and will bubble up.
  • Add butter, salt and cinnamon, stirring until all mixed.
  • Let cool to serve as a dip.  Can be kept in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
