Caramel Apple Topping

Cast your vote for Caramel Apple Topping

A Fall Favorite

Caramel apples appear to have originated around the 1950s. Their creation is attributed to a man by the name of Dan Walker who worked as a Kraft's food representative. When you buy Kraft caramel squares today, his recipe is still printed on the back of the bag. This popular treat is a fall favorite because apples are a delicious autumn delight. These caramel apples have become a staple food item at carnivals and fairs. Almost everyone can remember back to childhood and taste the delicious blend of tart fall apples and sweet creamy caramel. If you haven't eaten one in a while, this recipe will serve up a little nostalgia and give you a way to enjoy the pairing of apples and caramel in a tooth friendlier way.

      I agree Carol, caramel is a truly scrumptious flavor. It makes almost anything taste better. I hope you enjoy. I make 32 individual cheesecakes topped with this and they got gone fairly quickly. Hope to see you again soon.
