When I made the apple cupcakes from my last post I decided to frost them with caramel frosting. Who can resist a caramel apple?
When it reaches this color, add 2/3 cup of heavy whipping cream. Pour it in slowly and stir. Be forewarned, it gets very bubbly and can splatter as you add the cream. Sorry, no picture of this step, oops.
here. You'll have some caramel sauce left over! You could add a spoonful of it to your coffee each morning...or pour it on ice cream...or dip apples in it...or lick it off the spoon...oh, the possibilities.
