For the Caramel Macchiato Sauce

  • ½ cup brown sugar packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup International Delight Caramel Macchiato Creamer
  • pinch of salt plus more to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla

For the Apple Bites

  • 2 Crisp apples sliced
  • ¼ cup crushed pretzels
  • ¼ cup crushed pecans or other nuts
  • ¼ cup miniature chocolate chips


For the Caramel Macchiato Sauce

  • Combine sugars, butter, creamer and pinch of salt in a heavy sauce pan over low heat.
  • Stir occasionally until the sugar liquefies and the butter melts and develops a delicious brown caramel color and aroma, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Let the caramel mixture come to a boil and cook for a minute or two longer.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and another pinch of salt, to taste.
  • The mixture will still be fairly liquid, but it will thicken as it cools.
  • Allow to cool slightly in the pan, then transfer to a bowl or glass jar. Do not scrap any granular bits of sugar from the side of the pan, as this can cause your caramel to become grainy as it cools.
  • Refrigerate until cool and thick.

For the Apple Bites

  • Once the caramel macchiato sauce has cooled completely and thickened, cut apples into slices.
  • Dip or drizzle with caramel mixture, then sprinkle with nuts, pretzels, chocolate chips and other toppings.
