Caramel Apples II

Nothing beats the old-fashioned flavor of caramel apples when the caramel is made from scratch!


6 servings


6 medium apples
6 wooden skewers
1 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
candy sprinkles, chopped candy or chopped peanuts, if desired (e.g. Betty Crocker®)


Wash apples and dry thoroughly. Insert a wooden skewer in stem end of each apple. Spray plate with cooking spray.

In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar, corn syrup, milk and salt. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, to 230°F (110°C) on candy thermometer or until a few drops of syrup dropped into cup of cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from water. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Cool slightly.

Quickly dip apples into caramel, swirling until completely covered. Dip bottoms in candy sprinkles. Place apples on plate until caramel is set.
