Homemade Salted Caramel Apple Dip – it’s super easy to whip up this homemade caramel. So easy that you’ll never buy it from the store again.
It’s perfect for dipping tart granny smith apples, Honey Crisp or our new favorite Sweet Tango. What’s your favorite kind of apple? This homemade caramel is a Fall staple. We made a quick video so you can see how simple it comes together. Probably the hardest part is patiently waiting for the sugar to boil or basically self stir for 10 solid minutes. Other than that, you’re golden…as in sweet golden caramel ready to dip. Yum!
My neighbor recently shared this recipe with us, and I’ve made it three times since! We are surrounded by so many generous neighbors with apple trees, and this dip is a must when you have lots of apples.
The boil time for this recipe is a little longer if you live in a high elevation like we do here in Utah. The recipe reads boil for 10 minutes, but it’s more like 15 minutes. If you keep an eye on it, as soon as it starts to turn a golden color, you can take it off the heat.
Homemade Salted Caramel Apple Dip
- 2 tablespoons corn syrup
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 c. water
- 1/4 c. butter half of 1 stick
- 1/4 c. heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon sour cream
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Add sugar, corn syrup and water to a medium saucepan (do not stir at all)
Bring to a simmer over medium heat without stirring. Simmer until the sugar has turned a dark caramel color (about 10 min.), or a little longer if needed Do not let it burn.
Remove from heat and add the butter, heavy cream, sour cream, salt and vanilla stir until smooth. Let cool slightly before serving. Best served warm.
It might take more than 10 minutes before it starts to change color if you live in a higher elevation. It takes more like 15 minutes where we live.
