DIRECTIONS

  • Insert 1 wooden stick into each apple.
  • In a heavy saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and milk; bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Cook and stir until a candy thermometer reads 248 degrees (firm ball stage) about 30-40 minutes and for a softer caramel cook just to a few less degrees.
  • Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
  • Dip each apple into hot caramel mixture; turn to coat.
  • Holding by the stick, sprinkle with nuts or whatever you desire while the caramel is still warm (work quickly the caramel sets up fast).
  • Set on generously buttered wax paper to cool (make certain to generously butter the paper).
  • Note: if making a double recipe make two recipes in two separate pots.
