Fruit Salads with Caramel

Every once in a while I have a zest to put caramel on some of my food items that I eat. Putting caramel on a fruit salad can certainly add flavor to an already delicious fruit salad. Many people like to drizzly their caramel on top, I like to shake it in there. Either way the delicious caramel taste is in the fruit salad. Sometimes when I eat caramel, it reminds of days at the fair going on a ferris wheel. I guess that is because I would be getting my hands on a candy apple with caramel. But at state fairs they don’t typically have Fruit Salads with Caramel. Below are 12 awesome Fruit Salad with Caramel ideas to share with family and friends.
