Salted Caramel Apples are fresh tart apples coated in a rich homemade salted caramel for the perfect fall treat!
Ingredients
  • 1⅓ c. granulated sugar
  • ½ c. butter
  • 1 c. corn syrup
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp. fine sea salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 10 apples
  • 10 popsicle sticks
Instructions
  1. Before starting the caramel, wash and dry the apples. Skewer the center of each apple with a popsicle stick and set aside.
  2. Add the sugar, butter, syrup, milk and salt in a heavy sauce pan. Cook over low heat and stir frequently as the mixture thickens. Stir constantly as it darkens. Remove from heat when your candy thermometer reaches 250° (firm ball stage). Beat in vanilla.
  3. Working quickly, dip the skewered apples in the caramel, coating as well as possible. Using a spoon, remove any excess caramel on the bottoms before setting on a greased baking sheet. Continue the process until all of the apples are coated. If desired, sprinkle the tops of each apple with a little extra sea salt.
  4. NOTE: Towards the end, you may have to scoop the caramel and spread it over the apples. These ones won't look as pretty, but they will taste just as great! ;)
