This is the best caramel apple recipe ever! Store bought caramel does not even begin to complete with the rich, creamy caramel this recipe makes. I live at a high altitude, so I tested the boiling point of my thermometer & then adjusted the recipe accordingly. Worked perfect! I'll be making these every fall for sure.
This recipe worked great and was also delicious drizzled over pretzels. I will use it again.
I don't give a lot of 5 star reviews, but these were perfect! Not too hard, not so soft that they slid off the apple. My only change to the recipe, is that I do not like Red Delicious for caramel apples - they are too sweet and get mushy. I prefer a slightly more tart, firm apple. I used a Fuji (which was fine), but I think that a Jonagold, Pippin or Pink Lady would probably be even better. The quality of the apple counts!! Otherwise, excellent recipe! I also only use either Ghirardelli chocolate, or in a pinch I'll grab a Belgian (Kroger has their own Belgian brand that's pretty decent) or Hershey's. Thanks for the recipe...it's a keeper!
These are the best caramel apples ever. Really. Ever. The caramel is just slightly chewy, not too hard and not too soft. It sticks to the apple when cooled slightly before dipping apples, then dip in an ice water bath and refrigerate immediately. After caramel was set we added the drizzled chocolate and dipped in toffee bits. And it tastes Heavenly. I will make these again next year for sure.
