  • 1 cup caramel from a block, or individual candies
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon Fleur de Sel or your favorite sea salt

Apple bowls

  • 4 medium apples
  • juice of 1 lemon 3 to 4 tablespoons
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream store-bought or homemade
  • chopped toasted walnuts or pecans optional


  • To make the caramel sauce: Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a heavy-bottomed saucepan set over low heat. Stir at regular intervals until the caramel has melted and the mixture is smooth.
  • Bring the sauce just to a boil, then remove from the heat.
  • To make the apple bowls: cut off the top portion of the apples, and hollow out the cores and surrounding flesh with a melon baller, spoon, or whatever other tool you have handy.
  • Brush the lemon juice all over the inside of each apple.
  • Fill each apple with 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream, drizzle with caramel sauce, and top with toasted nuts, if desired.
