Bonus. This isn’t the only caramel recipe you should try!

Looking for other apple desserts? How about homemade apple fritters? They’re really delicious, but if you’re looking for something healthier than this apple fried treat, try baked apples with ice cream. With this recipe, you bake apples with butter, cinnamon, and honey.
