Caramel and Peanut Butter Sauce

Okay, I know what you are saying...How is this a gift? Well, first, it can be a wonderful dipping sauce for apples or use as a sauce over pound cake slices if you need a holiday party recipe. And second, it can be a gift by just putting some in small jelly jars and giving it with a little card that tells the giftee to microwave to warm and then they can use it to dip apples or to pour over pound cake...or pancakes...

Caramel and Peanut Butter Sauce

1 (14 oz) package caramels, unwrapped
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup peanut butter, smooth
1/c cup Pecans, chopped into small pieces, optional

Mix all ingredients into a crock pot sprayed with cooking spray. Cover and cook on LOW for 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Stir after about the first 30 to 45 minutes to make sure the caramels don't burn and get mixed up. You might want to keep a check on the caramels to make sure they are melting evenly. When the caramels are melted and the sauce is smooth, it is ready.

When melted, spoon into small jars and place a note with the sauce that says to microwave on low for 30 seconds (10 seconds longer if not melted)...

Happy Slow Cooking! Enjoy and Hugs!
