Welcome to this month Fantastical Food Fight, hosted by Sarah at A Fantastical Sharing of Recipes! This month’s theme is honey!
There are many directions to take with this amazing ingredient! I love it!
Ultimately, I was reminded of a honey caramel ice cream topping I had once and was determined to try to replicate it!
When I found a recipe for a super easy 4-ingredient caramel sauce, I knew I had to try it!
The caramel sauce wasn’t quite what I had in mind when I set out – it is even better! It has an intense toffee flavor that has me licking spoonfuls of the stuff! It is so decadent! It is phenomenal drizzled on ice cream or apple slices!
On an unrelated note, did you know that the first meaning of the word decadent is debauched, corrupt or immoral? Whoa, right?
Then the second meaning is all like, oh, and also it means luxurious self-indulgent, don’t worry about all that debauchery in the first meaning.
I also didn’t use decadent because of it! Ha!
Don’t miss everyone else’s honey submissions below the recipe!

This sauce looks terrific -- super idea for apple season, too!ReplyDelete
You can't go wrong with a quick caramel sauce!ReplyDelete
ooooh i want to try this! looks like a great caramel recipe. :)ReplyDelete
This sauce sounds lovely, however, I'm not sure I'd waste it on apples. Too healthy! I think I'd be dipping cookies, cake, maybe even s'mores in it!!! You have some serious will-power to stick with the fruit! Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck - ColleenReplyDelete
This sounds amazing. I love that it has a toffee flavor. I've never thought of using honey when making caramel. I'll need to remedy that.ReplyDelete
Amy, this is indeed "decadent" :-D I also refrain using this word most of the time but we see it so many times in food articles.. Your recipe is perfect and loved the fact you used condensed milk which makes it creamier than using heavy cream... a little more salt will make it a salted honey caramel sauce that I love to drizzle over anything.. :-) and ice cream for now.. and just like you a slice of apple.. healthy and decadent :-D LOLReplyDelete
This is the perfect post for this time of year!! I love apple season!ReplyDelete
I love the addition of honey! I never thought to do that with my caramel sauce.ReplyDelete
That is definitely a dangerously decadent sauce ;) Perfect for fall!ReplyDelete
I love that honey is the dimension for this caramel sauce... decadent!ReplyDelete
What a great idea! I love honey caramel sauce as I find it is easier than normal caramel and keeps its consistency. Would love to make this to have with some crisp apples.ReplyDelete
