One way to get kids to eat fruit is to sweeten it up.   Apple wedges with caramel dip are a favorite of adults and kids alike.  This dip is lighter than most—almost a milky caramel.  We think you will enjoy it.

This is an easy, three-step recipe.  To serve this in a lunch, pack a small tub full of dip.

Caramel Apple Dip

1 1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 12 ounce can evaporated milk
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. In a heavy saucepan, mix the sugar, cornstarch, and about 1/4 cup of the milk together.  Stir until mixed and dissolved.
2. Add the remaining milk and corn syrup.  Cook until bubbly then cook and stir for two more minutes.
3. Remove from the heat and add the butter and extract.   Let cool.
