Is there anything more delicious at an Oct. party than candy & caramel apples?! These tasty treats hold a special place in my childhood memory! Like cotton candy at a circus, candy apples hold the spotlight at any harvest party.
You’ll be so surprised at how easy these wonderful treats are to make! Get the whole family involved – they’ll never forget it!
Line a few cookie trays with wax paper to set your apples on to cool.
Choose your favorite apples – wash & dry.
Melt a bag of caramels in the microwave – watch & stir.
Insert popsicle sticks into the apples.
Dip & coat with nuts
1 C light corn syrup
1 1/2 C sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Red food coloring
Bring sugar – corn syrup & water to a boil. Stir often! Let boil without stirring until it reaches “soft crack” stage – 285o (takes approx. 15-20 min). Use a wooden spoon to stir in red coloring & cinnamon. Dip & allow to dry. Coating will harden as it cools!
Here are just a few ideas to make these apples extra special.
After you coat with desired coating, roll the apple in;
– chopped nuts (use your favorite kinds)
– chocolate chips
– cinnamon candies
– powdered sugar
– crushed cookies
Enjoy this easy caramel apple recipe & make some memories for you and your family!
