Doesn't get much easier than this! A perfectly decadent treat for a hot summer day. If you don't have any popsicle moulds, you can use wooden sticks and disposable paper/plastic cups (just allow to freeze partially before inserting stick). I recommend refrigerating your caramel first so it's firmer and a little easier to work with. To make dulce de leche, I cook (closed) cans of condensed milk in my pressure cooker, filled with water, for 45 minutes; there are also several other methods to make it. You could also use ready-made caramel or make it from scratch. Though I'm not a fan of food colouring, you could add some green or red to the applesauce to make a nice contrast with the centre...

You will need:
- popsicle moulds
- applesauce
- dulce de leche

Pour applesauce into your moulds until 2/3 full (keep in mind they will expand once frozen).

Drop some dulce de leche into the centre and lightly push down into the applesauce. If your moulds are tall and slim, drop smaller quantities and repeat a few times so there is caramel all along the pop.

Fill the rest of the moulds with applesauce. Place sticks and freeze until solid.

Enjoy Grin
