5 minute salted caramel apple dip

so this one, one of my best friends gave us as a neighbor gift for christmas…
it lasted a really long time, but when it was gone,
i was borderline depressed about it.
i mentioned it nearly every night.
i obsessed over it.
i bugged my friend for the recipe until she caved.
i ate so many apples when this stuff was around.
and i’m not saying it’s healthy, but oh does it feel good going down.
going to be a weekly treat now that i know how to make it!
and it’s super easy!

    Can this be made in advance and kept in the fridge (or would it somehow separate)?

      Yes! I first received this as a gift from a neighbor for Christmas and it had directions for reheating in the mircrowave. It kept for about 2 weeks!

    What would the reheating instructions be? Is it best served warm or does room temperature (after being reheated) or cold work?

      It becomes pretty solid once cold, but room temp or warm is the best.
