How to Make Caramelized Apple Topping for Ice Cream

Do you know how to make caramelized apple topping? If not, you have got to try it. There are apples everywhere that I look: the grocery store, the farm stand, and the trees outside. Of course, that means that they are one of the most affordable fruits to buy and that means my grocery budget is happy. This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of De’Longhi. The opinions and text are all mine.

When you caramelize something, you cook it until the starches in the food are converted to sugar. This is generally done by cooking the food at high heat. Since fruits are naturally sweet, caramelizing fruit is fairly simple to do. We enjoy caramelized apple topping on pancakes, waffles, yogurt and even ice cream. I enjoy eating it as is but the kids and my husband use it more as a topping.

I received a De’Longhi MultiFry to try out and it has taught me an entirely new way of cooking. MultiFry is an innovative cooking appliance that combines a low-oil fryer with a multicooker. You can do just about everything from fried foods like French fries and mozzarella sticks to fish, stews, and ratatouilles. You can even make pizzas, cakes pies, and more! So, of course, I am going to use it to make caramelized apple topping!

This is really super easy to make and a much better choice than many of the ice cream toppings you can buy at the store. I love how handy the De’Longhi MultiCooker is because I can do so many different things in it.  Learn more about De’Longhi and what they offer today.

  1. OH WOW that looks delicious! I bet it smelled absolutely amazing as well! I wouldn't be able to control myself! ha!
  2. Another sugary treat I know my dad would love! Dad always ate real butter and never, ever margarine! I am patiently waiting for apple sales, which I haven't seen lately. Granted, it's been so hot here and far from feeling like fall, but Halloween is right around the corner, so I'm getting in the mood.
  3. This Caramelized Apple Topping looks so delicious. I've been looking for something different to serve for Thanksgiving dessert. Thankfully, I just found it. Thanks for the recipe.
