  • 1 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


  • Add the ingredients to heavy bottom pan and heat over medium-low. Stir occasionally. If you have a candy thermometer, you will want to cook this to about 230 degrees. If you don't, bring to a low boil, reduce heat to low, and cook for about 5-6 minutes after it boils. The caramel should thicken just slightly as it cooks.
    This is wonderful caramel to use for a dip for apples, over ice cream, pie, cheesecake, or just about anything you can think of!
    If you aren't using it right away, it will hold in the fridge for about 3-5 days. Just make sure it is stored in an airtight container. Simply reheat when you are ready to use!
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
