Caramel Sauce

Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 9 mins
Yield Makes 1 2/3 cups


  • 1 (14-ounce) package caramels
  • 1 (5-ounce) can evaporated milk

How to Make It

  1. Combine caramels and milk in a large saucepan; cook over medium-low heat until caramels are melted and smooth, stirring often.

  2. Tip: Let caramel sauce cool 10 minutes before serving over your cheesecake to prevent melting.

  3. Tip: Don't spoon too much apple filling in one area of your cheesecake batter because it will sink. To spread apple filling evenly over your cheesecake batter, dollop teaspoonfuls randomly over the batter, and then use your fingers to fan out the apples.
