The Best Caramel Dip
- 1/2 cup salted butter
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar (light or dark)
- 3/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, corn syrup, and sweetened condensed milk, stirring to combine. Stir constantly until mixture comes to a light bubbly boil. Remove from heat right away and add the vanilla. Stir to combine. Serve warm or at room temperature with apple slices and pretzels or drizzle over ice cream.
Don’t let the caramel come to a full, rolling boil. Just let it get nice and bubbly and then take it off the heat. It will get too hard and thick to scoop if you cook it too long.
And now for some personal indulgences.
And today he is a giant. Not really, but compared to that tiny newborn I brought home, he is. How does this happen again? This growing thing?
Henry is excellent at fighting and shooting bad guys with sticks.
He is kind and thoughtful and always bringing me presents.
And he is just an all-around happy person. What a joy he is to his mom! Now I can’t wait for him to wake up to get this birthday started.
Thanks for letting me share some cuteness with you.
Now onto the sadness of the week. (Details here)
Chicken Update: I have no idea what is going on. I know the neighbors know that their dogs are gone, but have they been told where they are?! Does dog jail call them up to tell them their dogs are busted? Did the officers leave a sticky note on their door when he took the dogs? They haven’t come to talk to me, so I don’t know what they do and do not know. I filled out a little report and an officer was supposed to come on Tuesday to pick it up and talk to me, but he’s yet to come by. Lame, huh? So honestly, I have no idea what is going on. I’m going to call the officer today and talk to him. Again, I’ll keep you posted.
I just have to say thank you again for all your condolences and kind words. You are the best. And my heart is healing. Thank you.
