Caramel Apple Ice Cream with Homemade Caramel Sauce

September 23, 2013
I mentioned in my last post, that some new apple recipes will be shared this week.   
Actally, I have all apples, all the time for you this week..an apple-poolooza if you will.  It's so very exciting!


First up is this delicious ice cream. 
Just because it's fall doesn't mean that ice cream season is over.  Nooooo..especially, at our house.  Ice cream season has always been all year round.  With my new found love of ice cream making too..it's really all year round now.  Filled with caramel,  real apple bites, a great cinnamon flavor and topped off with some extremely easy homemade caramel. Because, well..come on, it's caramel.  Do you need a reason for it?  
It's a great way to start the fall season...
Wednesday: more apples!
