My friend Sandi made this last fall and sent some over. It is delicious! To keep your apples sparkling white and crispy, soak them in Sprite or 7-up.
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup karo syrup
1 cube butter
1/8 tsp. salt
Place these ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil 7 minutes, stirring constantly. Then add the following:
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Cook and stir for 10 more minutes. Watch for a nice caramel color. If you have a candy thermometer, cook to 228 degrees. (Be careful not to overcook). Cool this mixture for 10-15 minutes, then add the following:
8 oz. cream cheese
8 oz. sour cream
Whisk to blend. Serve with apples, bananas, marshmallows, pretzels, etc. Refrigerate leftovers.
