Ingredients

  • 10 medium tart apples
  • 10 Popsicle sticks
  • 2-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2-3/4 cups white baking chips
  • 3 tablespoons shortening

Nutritional Facts

1 caramel apple equals 874 calories, 42 g fat (25 g saturated fat), 79 mg cholesterol, 236 mg sodium, 125 g carbohydrate, 4 g fiber, 5 g protein.

Directions

  1. Wash and dry apples; remove stems. Insert Popsicle sticks into the bottoms of apples. Place on a buttered baking sheet; refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the brown sugar, cream, corn syrup and butter. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until a candy thermometer reads 248° (firm-ball stage), about 50 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Dip apples into the hot caramel to completely coat. Place on prepared pan; let stand until set.
  3. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; set aside. In a microwave, melt white chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip one caramel apple into the warm white chip mixture and immediately sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Repeat. Yield: 10 servings.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.

This is the BEST recipe ever! I actually drizzle white chocolate on instead of dipping in though. Looks much cooler. Sometimes I sprinkle decorations on them as well for Halloween. But this is a must for all Halloween parties! The caramel is not to sticky either.

These apples remind me of the ones that can be purchased at high-end candy shops... but they cost a lot less! I use my apple corer/slicer to serve.
