Caramel Apples

(shown above: snickers apple from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory)

Here's the recipe for the carmel. After coating the apple, you can dip in chocolate, nuts, chopped snickers, crushed oreos....the possibilities are endless!
2 cups brown sugar, packed
1 cup karo syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 stick of butter (equals 1/2 cup butter--margarine is not as good in this recipe)
Mix all together in a big pot. Keep it on medium to high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly so it doesn't burn. Cook it to a soft ball stage. Ross carmel in a ball and set it on the counter. If it stays together then it is done. If it starts to fall out of a ball its not there yet
This recipe is also good for popcorn!


  1. Couldn't you just use a candy thermometer? that's what I plan on doing. We're hoping to do this soon. Yummy!

  2. Oh Wow! That makes me hungry! I'm not a big candy apple fan, because usually there's just too much apple. However, I can control that, by making my own!!! YUM!
