Every October we buy 5 juicy tart Granny Smiths and make caramel apples. But we just don’t make plain caramel apples. Ours are little works of art! They look so pretty sitting on my little vintage plates! But not too pretty to eat… LOL
But here’s the recipe for the caramel.
1 can condensed milk
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1/8 tsp salt
Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring very often to keep from burning, until it reaches 250. Remove from heat.
Stir in 1 tsp vanilla.
Place popsicle sticks into washed and dried apples.
Dip into caramel, covering completely.
Place on baking sheet lined with wax paper.
If you wish you may drizzle with melted chocolate or sprinkle with nuts, candies or sprinkles.
Place in fridge until firm.
