  • 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.
