Happy Friday Everyone. It’s fall y’all! I’ve been waiting all month to say that. 🙂 Yes, fall is here, & although its early in the season, I have a fun activity the family can get together to do this weekend.
Apples are very popular this time of year. They’re great for a variety of known favorites… apple pie, apple muffins…etc. I especially love caramel covered or taffy apples as they are also called. And this is the perfect season for apple picking.
So, how about making your own caramel apples! It’s much more fun when you get together & whip up the ingredients to do it yourselves, & I have the perfect recipe for you. Enjoy! 🙂
8 large tart apples (can adjust accordingly)
8 wooden chopsticks for handles
1 cup butter
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
(You can add whatever extra toppings you prefer…nuts…etc)
Because the caramel requires constant attention when cooking and you will be in a hurry when coating the apples, prep everything beforehand. Have your parchment paper laid out, your toppings ready in bowls, etc. Also, each stove differs as far as temperature & how long you will need for the caramel to cook. It can take 20 min for some…others 40 min, so it can vary greatly.
Well, I hope you enjoyed the recipe…& if you prefer not to do it yourselves, that’s ok too, just go to your local grocery store & buy some already made! Have a great weekend…until next time, “Toodles!” 😉
