Caramel Apples

Lynn demonstrates how to make a Fall tradition -- Caramel Apples.  This is really easy and delicious.  You can dip them in chopped peanuts or be really fancy and drizzle them with melted chocolate.


  • 12 whole apples
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 cup white syrup, such as Karo
  • 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups white granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Wash and dry apples and insert popsicle sticks or thick lollipop sticks in the apples.  Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.

Heat all of the ingredients, except the vanilla in a heavy 2 quart saucepan over medium/low heat.  Stir constantly!  When the caramel reaches soft ball stage (235°-240°F) remove from the heat and add vanilla.  Cool for just a few minutes.

Using the stick inserted in the apples, dunk the apples in the hot caramel and twirl slowly away from the heat for a couple of minutes.  Dip in chopped peanuts, if using and place on the waxed paper lined baking sheet to harden.
