  • 2 1/2 - 3 pounds apples I used a mix of Gala and Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 3/4 cup store-bought caramel sauce divided
  • 1/2 cup apple cider juice, or water
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt


  1. In a large pot, combine the apples, caramel sauce, apple cider, cinnamon, and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the apples are fork tender, about 25 minutes. Using an immersion blender, puree the sauce to desired consistency. Cool the sauce completely. Swirl in the remaining 1/4 cup of caramel.
