A Bite of Fall: The Classic Caramel Apple

How to Make the Gooey & Yummy Treats

There’s nothing quite like the fresh crunch of an apple blended with the rich creaminess of caramel. Perfect for an evening treat, or a family get-together, here's how you can make your own caramel apples this season:


·      8 tart apples (Granny Smith recommended)

·      8 wooden sticks

·      2 cups brown sugar

·      1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter

·      1 cup heavy cream

·      2/3 cup corn syrup

·      1/2 tsp vanilla extract

·      Pinch of salt

·      Optional toppings: nuts, chocolate chips, sprinkles, coconut flakes.


Apple Prep: Wash apples thoroughly to remove wax and residue. Dry them well. Remove stems and insert sticks firmly.

Making Caramel: In a saucepan, mix sugar, butter, cream, syrup, and salt. Continuously stir on medium heat until mixture reaches 250°F  on a candy thermometer (firm-ball stage).

Vanilla Addition: Next, remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Let it cool for 2 minutes ensuring it remains dippable.

Dipping: Hold apples by the stick, dip into caramel ensuring full coverage. If adding toppings, do so while caramel is warm. Place on a parchment-lined tray.

Final Touch: Allow apples to set for approximately an hour until hardened. Once set, they're ready to savor!

Celebrate the essence of fall with caramel apples, a delightful blend of tart, sweet, and creamy. A perfect treat to relive cherished memories or start new traditions.
