Ingredients

  • medium red apples
  • Popsicle Sticks
  • 2 1/4  Cups  packed brown sugar
  • 3/4  Cups  butter
  • can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4  Cups  dark corn syrup
  • 3/4  Cups  maple syrup
  • 1 1/4  Teaspoon  molasses
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • bag of orange, yellow, and white candy melts

Directions

Remove apple stems. Insert sticks into apples. Place on a baking sheet. Refrigerate until ready to use.

In a large heavy saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter, milk, corn syrup, maple syrup, and molasses. Stir with a spoon over low heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until a candy thermometer reads 248 degrees F. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla. Dip apples, one at a time, into caramel, and then into a cold water bath for 1-2 seconds to set caramel. Melt the candy melts in individual bowls, transfer to squeeze bottles. Drizzle over caramel apples one at a time.

Candy Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Candy Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
