Once the weather starts chilling down this amazing sugary treat becomes the go to flavor in my house. It is almost fall so everything is coming up Caramel. There is nothing like the taste of hot gooey caramel draped over a bowl of ice cream to make a cold dessert turn into a fall tummy warming after dinner treat.

Caramel candies, caramel apples, even a caramel latte taste better when the temperature dips and a chill sets in for the season.

When I was young no one in my family like caramel so I never actually had it until I was at a friend house in high school. Their Mom made her own caramel candies and sauce. She put it in and on everything. The first time I ever had apple pie with hot caramel sauce at their house I swore I never eat apple pie without it again.

I am not really a fan of the caramel you wrap around an apple. I prefer the kind that you dip the apple into and then wait for it to harden. But truth be told if it's caramel I'll eat it. Don't tell my dentist.
