So, I’ve mentioned before that I’m not really a fan of caramel. Just too sweet, I’ve always said.
Well, I may have to change my tune. Apparently if it’s homemade salted caramel sauce, I can’t get enough. This stuff is so good, that my usual evening snack of a nice, healthy apple? That may have morphed into apple nachos far more often then is necessary. Those things are positively addictive. And the super annoying part of it is that if you’re going to bother slicing up an apple and drizzling salted caramel sauce on it – well then you might as well get super fancy.
I’ve been making apple nachos with salted caramel, chocolate, AND peanut butter drizzles, and then tossing on chopped pecans and raisins and sometimes dried cherries. Oh my goodness, there may not be a better snack out there. My husband informed me last night that he could get on board with fruit when it’s done that way! Of course, who couldn’t?!
And I think the best part of those “nachos” was seriously the homemade salted caramel sauce. And you can pretty much rely on the truth in that comment, because it is coming from a professed chocoholic and caramel hater. Who am I? Next I’ll find myself liking white chocolate or something. It’s actually a little irritating. Not enjoying caramel kept me from some pretty sugary treats, now I’m going to be adding salted caramel to everything. This could be bad.
