  • 1 cups brown sugar
  • ⅛ cup water
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • ½ cup whipping cream

  • 1 medium apple, cored and cut into chunks
  • 6 strawberries, quartered
  • ½ cup red grapes
  • ½ cup green grapes


  • Combine the sugar and water in a medium saucepan and cook on medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. When the sugar is dissolved, turn up the heat and boil the mixture for at least 5 minutes, until the sugar turns very slightly darker.
