“Apples on sticks dipped in cooked caramel”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and completely dry the apples. Insert a stick (I use tongue depressors) into the stem end of each apple.
  2. Cut 8 squares of waxed paper big enough to wrap the apple after cooled. Butter each square lightly.
  3. Fit a heavy bottomed saucepan with a candy thermometer. Over high heat, cook 3/4 cup of the cream, the corn syrup, butter and sugar to 280 degrees F (firm ball); at this point the syrup will be golden. Remove from heat and carefully swirl in the remaining 1/4 cup cream and the vanilla. While the caramel is hot dip and turn the apples til coated, placing them one at a time in the middle of a waxed paper square. leaving them on the squares chill until caramel is set then bring paper up around apple and twist around stick. Options; dip in nuts or chopped choc chips.
