I can’t even remember what recipe I was trying to make when Caramel Apple Pie Ice Cream Sauce was born. Maybe bananas foster without bananas since this is similar to those, only with way more yummy sauce and the addition of walnuts.
I prefer to use sweet apples when I make this, but Granny Smith would work just not as sweet perhaps. I use have used Red Delicious, Gala, Honeycrisp and Fuji successfully, but Fuji is my favorite. Probably because it is the sweetest.
Caramel Apple Pie Ice Cream Sauce is best eaten hot to warm and served over ice cream. This creates the perfect marriage of hot and cold, one of my favorite ways to eat desserts and midnight snacks. Or more realistically like the cute little girl on TV says a 10:43 snack. I rarely have my eyes open at midnight these days.
