5 1/2 pounds apples - peeled, cored and finely chopped
4 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 jar caramel ice cream topping pr 25

Place the apples in a slow cooker. In a medium bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Pour the mixture over the apples in the slow cooker and mix well.

Cover and cook on high 1 hour.

Reduce heat to low and cook 9 to 11 hours, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and dark brown.

Uncover and continue cooking on low 1 hour. Stir with a whisk, if desired, to increase smoothness. Stir in 1/2 jar caramel ice cream topping or 25 unwrapped caramels.

Spoon the mixture into sterile containers, cover and refrigerate or freeze.

I first tasted apple butter with caramel in it and LOVED it when a friend gave me a jar in a swap online. So I adapted my own crockpot apple butter to include caramel....I of course had to use the easier topping rather than unwrap all those caramels!
