Caramel Apples

It is a beautiful crisp fall morning here today and it also is the day we break ground for my new barn. I can’t wait for it to be completed, I am really excited about it. Today would be a perfect apple orchard day if I knew where one was here.

Caramel Apples made with homemade caramel! The best ever....
  • 6 apples
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  1. Mix sugar, corn syrup and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring just until the sugar dissolves. Cook, swirling the pan (do not stir), until the mixture is light amber and a candy thermometer registers 320 degrees, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat; slowly whisk in heavy cream, then the butter, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Return to low heat and whisk until smooth.
  3. Let cool until the caramel is thick enough to coat a spoon. Insert sticks into the stem ends of 6 apples and dip the apples into the caramel, letting the excess drip off. Roll in toppings if desired, then let cool on a parchment-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
  4. That's My Home
