Caramel Apple Fondue

I serve this warm caramel dip with sliced apples while we're watching football games on Sunday afternoons. It really warms us up. —Katie Koziolek, Hartland, Minnesota

    I made this and put it in my crock pot. The color was a beautiful caramel but by the time I served the apples and fondue it had turned a dark brown.

    LOVED this, I'd probably use about half the sugar next time, and it doesn't need to be in a fondue pot/mini slow cooker as this stays warm for hours.

    excellent dessert fondue. Add 1 C of chopped peanuts to the recipe, you can roll your apple slice in the nuts after dipping in caramel.
