Serves 5-6 apples
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5-6 Granny Smith apples, washed with soap and water
  • 6 wooden sticks

In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add sugar and slowly stir until sugar dissolves. Add corn syrup and sweetened condensed milk, return heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches 235° on a candy thermometer.  Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Immediately dip apples.

Remove stem from each apple. Skewer each apple through each stem end. To dip apples, hold each skewered apple at a 45° angle as you dip it into caramel. Rotate apple until it is coated completely. Allow excess caramel to drip off back into saucepan, then place dipped apples on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Allow to cool completely before serving.
