With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays approaching, I thought this would be a good time to share a small gift for those in your life you’re thankful for.
Maybe you gift your neighbors a small treat before Thanksgiving, or want to show the teachers how thankful you are for them before Fall Break. Below is an easy to follow recipe for my “Apple Pie” caramel apples.
Apple Pie Caramel Apples
Caramel Ingredients: (covers 12-15 Granny Smith Apples)
1 Cup Butter
2 Cups Light Corn Syrup
4 1/2 Cups Brown Sugar
2 Cans Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 tsp. Vanilla
Combine butter, corn syrup & brown sugar until melted. Then add sweetened condensed milk. Continue stirring until caramel starts to thicken and darken in color. Once it starts to ball together (soft ball stage), remove from heat and add vanilla.
Allow caramel to cool and continue to thicken before dipping apples. I use Granny Smith apples for this recipe because the tartness of them is perfect for all the sweetness you add.
Dip apples & place on parchment to cool at room temperature.
Next melt white chocolate, I use the almond bark for this and drizzle all around the caramel dipped apple. Once the first drizzle is dry, sprinkle a good dose of Cinnamon Sugar all over the apple.
1/4 Cup white sugar
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
