“How to Make Caramel Apples”
Tip: to clean your pot after you've made the caramel, fill the pot with water ad boil until the caramel is dissolved.
- 1 cup milk
- 2 1/2 cups sugar
- 10 apples
- Popsicle sticks
- Chopped nuts sprinkles, etc (optional)
Bring the milk to a simmer and stir in the sugar over medium heat.
Continue to cook, stirring occasionally until the sugar reaches 242 degrees F on a candy thermometer, or the caramel forms a soft ball when dropped into an ice water bath.
While the syrup is cooking, grease a baking sheet and place the apples stem-side up on the tray. Insert the popsicle sticks halfway into each apple.
Turn off the heat to the caramel when it has reached the soft ball stage and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
Roll the apples one at a time into the caramel until it is fully coated. Roll it into any toppings you choose and set it on the sheet tray.
Once all of the apples are dipped refrigerate them until ready to serve.
