Apples with Caramel Dip

caramel dip I came across one of those plastic-packaged apple snacks — the ones with the fresh slices (How do they keep them from turning brown? I really want to know…) and a little pot of caramel dip, which I noticed on the ingredient list was basically corn syrup with eighteen other additives. I did think it was an interesting idea in terms of enticing a kid to eat fruit — so I went home and tried to make it a bit less “mysterious.” This is a regular old fuji apple with a caramel sauce I got from Whole Foods. Corn syrup was still on the list, but was only joined by four other (recognizable) ingredients. I know — why can’t kids just eat an apple without all the song-and-dance? I wish I could answer that. Anyway, the caramel sauce is also good to have on hand for sundaes and maybe even to drizzle over roasted pears someday.
