We had such a fun Fall Fondue Party on the weekend. We enjoyed Cheese Fondue, and then an oil fondue with chicken, and tempura vegetables, along with lots of fun dipping sauces. See all the fun details and recipes here. After that it was time for a delicious fondue dessert -and we chose a Caramel Apple Fondue, perfect for fall.
My husband and my kids LOVE caramel apples, and I think this fondue version is even better than a traditional caramel apple, since it’s easy to eat, and you can try out all kinds of different toppings.
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup corn syrup
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp water
- 3/4 cup condensed milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- Put the butter in a heatproof bowl, set over a pan of simmering water and melt it.
- Add in the sugar, corn syrup, maple syrup, water, condensed milk, and cinnamon. Stir and cook until the fondue is smooth, and all the sugar is completely dissolved.
- Pour into fondue pot, and enjoy with your choice of dippers.
I highly recommend a fondue pot that has a ceramic bowl, inside the metal pot, where you can add water and create a double boiler to keep your fondue warm, without letting it burn on the bottom.
I sliced up some honey crisp and granny smith apples for dipping.
We also had lots of fun toppers. We used coconut, chocolate sprinkles, rainbow sprinkles, chopped walnuts, mini chocolate chips, chopped M&M’s, and popping candy. The kids loved trying all different kinds of combinations -every apple slice was a new adventure.
With homemade caramel apple fondue, life really is a party!
