Stir in the apples and combine throughly.  I sometimes add a little water to the mixture, as it becomes thick when stirring.

My family couldn’t wait to sample…it is also one of their favorites!  In fact, I was out with friends and my oldest daughter texted me to ask if they could eat it…no waiting for mom!

  1. It’s apple picking season back in England too! The flavour combination here of the apples and butterscotch is so tempting and perfect for the autumn! I baked some spiced apple cupcakes today with apples from the garden yesterday too! 🙂
