Recipe for Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Sundaes

Now that we know how to make caramel sauce in the slow cooker let's talk about how you can use it.  Like in these caramel apple sundaes.  Yum!  This is super simple and kind of reminds me of a yummy apple crisp. You simply cook the apples and a few other ingredients in the slow cooker and then serve the apples over vanilla ice cream and then top with the caramel sauce.  This is a crowd pleaser, for sure and a little different than the normal chocolate fudge sundaes (although those are good too).

    A little confused. Peel label? Does that mean you are putting the whole unopened can in the slow cooker? Why peel the label if you are just going to pour in the milk?

  2. yes, peel the label. Then put the unopened can in the crock. cover with water and cook on low all day.
