Homemade caramel apples - a harvest time favorite recipe.
Dietary Fiber: 4g
This recipe is the best I've found! The caramel comes out perfect and tastes professional. Just as good as you would find in places like Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. So good! I made mine with a variety of toppings and they all came out beautifully. I would recommend keeping the apples in the fridge after they're done and covered in toppings, that way the caramel won't melt off from the heat. I refrigerated mine and they stayed nice and firm. Also, don't wrap them in plastic wrap until they have cooled COMPLETELY. Otherwise, you will have the same issue as Amanda.
This recipe is delicious! By far the best recipe that I've found. I would have given it 5 stars, but my caramel melted off the apples :( I cooked it to 240 so it wouldn't be so hard and it stuck to the apples like a dream. Then I covered the pan with the finished apples loosely with plastic wrap before turning in for the night. This morning I go to check on them and the caramel is still on the apples, but it's a wet, soupy mess. The toppings are in place, but the caramel is literally dripping out in between. Should I have let the apples sit out without covering them? Any one have any idea why this happened?
i lov it :) lol and only 14years old
I made these for Halloween, they tasted terrific. They only covered 6 apples and if you cook this to the 245 degrees as stated it is sooo hard you can't bite it!! That is my only complaint, I cooked these exactly to the instructions. I will make again but change the cooking time, it also will burn easily if you don't have a heavy bottom pan.
I started my business with this recipe, So easy to follow caramel comes out perfect everytime.
good and easy recipe.
Best I ever tasted!!!!
Easy and Awesome!
The BEST carmel apple!!!!
a classic recipe..

Who doesn’t like Halloween? As you know, this is the time of year I let the boys decorate cookies with crazy eyes, spikes, legs and black icing. Yes, you read that right…black icing. The scarier and more crazy-looking things are, the more the boys are into it.
