Looking for a sweet easter treat the kids can make at home? The search is over! This caramel sauce tastes better than the real thing and only uses 3 ingredients.
Have fun and get creative with the toppings - pop corn, cacao nibs, chopped hazelnuts, the options are endless. For adults who prefer not to have a sticky grin whilst eating the apple off the stick - we recommend cutting the apple in slices and dipping instead!
