Caramel Apples

Caramel Apples

Perfect for Fall or any occasion really. These apples are sweet and covered with delicious caramel, you really can't beat it. They're pretty simple to make too, the hardest part is standing over the pot and stirring. 

Here's what you'll need: 

10 to 12 red delicious or granny smith apples

1 cup of butter

1 cup of Karo, or light corn syrup

3 cups of brown turbinado sugar, or plain brown sugar

1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk

2 tsp of vanilla extract.

Melt cubed butter in a medium, thick bottomed saucepan. Once it's melted add in all ingredients except for the vanilla extract.

Lower the heat to just under medium, and continue to cook, and stir for about 20 minutes. Until a candy thermometer reaches about 235°.

Take the pot off of the heat and add in your vanilla extract, stir well and let it sit for about 10 minutes.

Once it sits, it will thicken up a bit. 

While the caramel is cooling wash and dry your apples. Make sure there is no water left on the apples, or the caramel won't stick.  I usually add the apples to a sink full of water, with a few tablespoons of white vinegar. Just to get all of the wax off of the apples.

Insert your Popsicle sticks, and you're ready for dipping.

Lay out a sheet of wax paper, big enough to have a little room between each apple. 

Dip each apple and rotate to cover. Let the excess drip back into the pot, then place on the wax paper to cool.
