Who doesn't love a candy apple on Halloween? This caramel apple uses candy corn to give it a tasty Halloween twist. Make these as party favors at your next Halloween party. 

Ingredients

  • 9 medium red apples
  • 9 Popsicle Sticks
  • 2 1/4 Cups packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 Cups butter
  • 1 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
  • 1 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.
