Caramel and Candy Apples


































This one is for the kids…and for the kid in you. To kick it up a notch, you could dip your candy-coated apples in coconut flakes, finely chopped nuts, or even m&m’s if you want to be extra fancy.

P.S. be sure to have your dentist on speed dial, lol!!

Caramel Apples:

Ingredients:
  • 6 medium golden apples
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • Wooden skewers/popsicle sticks


Directions:

To make caramel, immerse unopened can of condensed milk in a pot of water and boil for about 2 hours. Make sure the water doesn’t dry out and the can is kept cover with water throughout the entire process.

  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  2. Insert skewers into the apples
  3. Allow can to cool before opening, and then pour contents into a bowl.
  4. Swirl apples in caramel until fully coated.
  5. Place apples on cookie sheet and allow to set.




Candy Apples:

Ingredients:
  • 6 medium red apples
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • Red food coloring
  • Wooden skewers/popsicle sticks


Directions:
  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  2. Insert skewers into the apples
  3. Bring sugar and water to boil in a hard pot, stirring constantly until temps read 300 degrees on a candy thermometer.
  4. Add a few drops of food coloring.
  5. Quickly dip each apple in the syrup until fully coated. Swirl to allow excess to fall off.
  6. Place on cookie sheet to cool.


Note: Always keep a close eye on the pot while making the syrup or it could burn. Be sure to dip the apples quickly before the candy hardens.
