Easiest date caramel sauce

I have been baking since I was in 5th grade, and I remember always making a homemade caramel sauce with condensed milk and pour it over apples for my younger brothers. This is NOT that caramel sauce… mostly because it’s actually delicious and actually healthy! If you are having any sort of gathering this fall. this recipe is a must! It’s only 2 ingredients. Yeah- TWO. And it takes about 10 minutes to make, so there is nothing holding you back! I know you guys are going to love this recipe, and I hope you share it on Instagram so I can see. Make sure you use my #naturallychelsrecipe and tag me @naturallychelsbates
