I love entertaining people in my home. The bigger the crowd, the better. I guess that could also explain why I have six kids instead of two....
So if you've been looking for the perfect excuse to have people over this fall weekend, you've found it. Be warned though. Word will quickly spread about how awesome you are and perfect strangers will come knocking on your door in search of this delicatable fall tradition :)
Caramel Apple Dip
(makes about 4 C)
1 C light corn syrup
1 lb light brown sugar (about 2 1/4 C)
1/2 C butter
2 tsp vanilla
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1. In a medium saucepan, stir together the corn syrup and brown sugar. Over medium-high heat, bring it to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once it comes to a full boil, allow to boil for 3 minutes.
2. Add the butter, vanilla and sweetened condensed milk. Stir well and continue to stir until it comes back to a boil. Once it does, remove from the heat. Serve with your favorite toppings to dip into: peanuts, pecans, walnuts, mini M&M's, marshmallows, candy corn, coconut, toffee pieces.
3. To reheat the caramel, just microwave it until it thins out some. The time depends on the amount of caramel you are reheating. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
