Who’s on Pinterest (you can follow me here)? I’ve been loving using Pinterest for recipes that I’m interested in trying; it’s so much better than having a billion bookmarks (which reminds me, I should probably go through mine..)! Really, they’re pretty much bookmarks with pictures. I love that. One thing I found when perusing Pinterest a while back was this salty medjool caramel. I love dipping apples into caramel or peanut butter, and I’ve been really getting into dates lately (although I’m not someone that can just eat them on their own – way too sweet for me!), so this dip looked like it’d be right up my alley.
Since my mom loves dates, I thought this recipe would be best to save for when I was at home. It lived up to all the expectations I had for it; it tastes just like caramel, and the texture is even creamier. I had so much fun hollowing out the apple to use for a bowl, and it was even better eating it afterward (although I got my entire face covered in caramel..oops).
This is definitely a much healthier version of a caramel dip, and I’m willing to bet you’ll like it even better!
