Ingredients

Sauce

  • 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

Directions

1) 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.

2) Bring the sauce just to a boil, then remove from the heat.

3) 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.

4) Brush the lemon juice all over the inside of each apple.

5) Fill each apple with 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream, drizzle with caramel sauce, and top with toasted nuts, if desired.

Yield: 4 sundaes.

  • This would be good if they were baked a bit before filling them... Hollow them out, season the inside, put a loosely wrapped tin foil ball, small cup, etc. - whatever will keep the apple from falling in on itself, bake it until softer than raw, take out the "filler? and fill with the sundae =) Yum!
