Caramel Apple Dip Recipe

Short and sweet, this recipe relies on four simple ingredients you likely have on hand.

1 stick of butter
1 cup of sour cream
1 cup of brown sugar (dark brown preferred)
4 teaspoons of vanilla extract

In a medium size pan, melt the butter on medium heat.  Add brown sugar and vanilla, stir.  Add sour cream and stir thoroughly until well blended.
Served warm it will be a little thin.  Chill in the fridge and it will thicken.  The dark brown sugar yields a more traditional caramel color, but light brown will be fine too.  Use within two days for the best consistency.

Hint: Crisp, tart apples are a nice complement to the sweet caramel flavor!

A special thank you to Betty Marier for the original recipe.
