Caramel Apple Dip


1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbsp light corn syrup
2 Tbsp margarine
1 cup vanilla-flavored milk alternative

Boil milk alternative over medium-low heat until reduced to 1/2 cup.

Heat sugar, corn syrup, margarine and 1/4 cup of the reduced milk alternative over medium heat until boiling, stirring constantly.

Add remaining milk alternative and continue to boil over medium low heat, stirring frequently, until it turns a caramel color, about 10-15 minutes.

Cool slightly before using as a dip for apple slices or spooning over whole apples. Makes enough for about 2 apples.

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
