A Dessert for All Big & Small, Dieting or Indulging: Oranges & Cardamom Caramel Sauce

By OneHungryMama |

oranges with cardamom caramel sauceI recently spied these oranges with caramel sauce on Martha Stewart. How brilliant is this idea?! Even just a little bit of caramel sauce is decadent, buttery and enough to satisfy any sweet tooth. And pairing caramel sauce with fresh, in-season oranges, keeps dessert light and healthy. Seriously! Just a little sauce goes a long way.

You don’t have to be on a diet to appreciate this well-balanced treat. Or you can be and still indulge. That’s what makes this so great! It also makes this dessert easy to share with even little eaters who don’t regularly feast on sugary desserts. For toddlers and bigger kids, make this is dipping dessert. (What kid doesn’t like dipping!) Cut oranges into segments and give them a small side dish of caramel sauce. They’ll love it! And you will, too.

This dessert is great with plain caramel sauce, but I think that cardamom, which goes great with orange, gives this a tasty ‘lil kick. If you like the sound of that, simply add ground cardamom to taste to my caramel sauce recipe. I find that about a teaspoon gives just the right hint of flavor.

Once the sauce is made, simply pour over oranges cut however you like. Or, as mentioned above, serve caramel sauce on the side for dipping.
