This recipe makes THE.BEST.CARAMEL. dip. It is my favorite, and its easy, and it is delicious with granny smith apples.
Start with a can of sweet condensed milk. Put it into a pot and fill it with water, covering the can completely. I use one of my older pots as the glue from the can label can get on the pot and it takes extra scrubbing to clean.
Lightly boil for a while. A long while. Like 4 hours- awhile. (There are some crock pot versions of this recipe, but we tried it and our crock pot didn’t cook it hot enough- so it was an epic fail-ha). You will want to refill the water several times and turn the can over with tongs a few times during the 4 hour cooking time.
Next, take the can out and let it cool for a bit. Then you get to see the magic- from sweet condensed milk to caramel.
This caramel is sooooo soft, sweet, and creamy. It really doesn’t compare to the pre-packaged caramel dip. You don’t need to buy it ever again when you have a recipe this easy! Put the dip into a cute fall bowl and plate add some extra fall decor- because food should look pretty too!
And then serve it to your friends of course! Because things this delightful are meant to be shared!
