Homemade Caramel Apples – Yum!

Nothing screams fall more than perhaps caramel apples. And, when you make them yourself, you have the recipe for an afternoon of deliciousness!

From-Scratch Caramel Apples

½ cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup corn syrup
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon seasonal spices (cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon), optional
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
10 medium tart apples (Granny Smith recommended)
Toppings as desired (chopped nuts, candy corn, popcorn, Cheerios, etc.)
Melt butter in a medium heavy saucepan.

Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and salt and bring to a full boil.

Add cream and desired spices and continue to cook until temperature reaches 250 degrees.

Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.

Skewer apples on craft sticks (or any stick will do) and dip into caramel, coating evenly.

Roll in topping of choice (if desired) and rest on greased baking sheet or waxed paper to cool.
