Excellent recipe! The caramel turned out smooth and creamy with just the right balance of sweetness and saltiness. I did take one detour with the recipe directions, as I omitted the ice bath step. Instead, I simply removed the pot from the stovetop and began dipping the apples. They turned out perfect--no bubbles and no pooling beneath the apples! I wrapped them in cellophane, tied them with a pretty bow and handed them out as favors for my son's 1st birthday party. They were a hit! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
turned out great, tasted great, caramel was nice and smooth in the pot but when I dipped the apples in, a bunch of air bubbles formed under the caramel, so the finished apples didn't look great. I'm not sure that it had anything to do with the recipe though, I've read that other people online have had the same problem.
I madethese for teacher gifts for my daughterandthey are delicious. The mixture has to cook for awhile before it starts to look like caramel and I used half the salt,based on the first review. I did not usethe ice- I let the caramel cool a bit and dipped Granny Smith apples and then my daughter decorated them with chocolate and pecans, I have made caramel apples several times and this recipe is very good and simple.
I had to make this twice as while I was making it the first time I was also trying to make my 3 year old son lunch and forgot to add the sugar!!! It definitely tasted a little salty!! I used the recipe to mix peanuts in and then dip in chocolate for peanut clusters and it worked wonders!! They are delicious!! Thanks for teh recipe!!
