Print Pin Recipe



  • Heat agave in a saucepan until tiny bubbles form around the edges --a very low simmer
  • Continue heating agave this way for 5 minutes (reduces water content of the agave)
  • Add heavy cream and salt, then bring mixture to a boil
  • Reduce heat to an active simmer (Heidi's words); continue to simmer actively for 7-10 minutes :-)
  • Remove mixture from heat when the caramel reaches a darker nutty color
  • Place saucepan in a large bowl of ice water to cool and thicken caramel
  • Place a large bowl of apple slices on the table
  • Provide an individual ramekin of caramel to each of your hungry little ghosts and goblins
  • Wash their hands with a wet rag before they leave the table

  1. Hi!

    I just made this with unsweetened coconut milk instead of heavy cream and used coconut syrup (made by cooking down 3:1 organic coconut sugar to water) instead of agave. It’s delicious! Thanks so much for the recipe.
