Caramel Apple Fondue

Yield 12 servings (serving size: 6 apple wedges and 1/4 cup caramel fondue)
This cider-spiced caramel fondue with apples is a perfect treat for a Halloween party. If you don't have that many guests, this recipe is easy to cut in half. You can also make the entire caramel fondue and store half in the refrigerator to use later as a topping for ice cream.

  • 82 small soft caramel candies (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 3/4 cup apple cider
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1 tablespoon brandy (optional)
  • Dash of ground nutmeg
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
