Fun Caramel Apple Recipe

This weekend I got together with some of my girls and we made caramel apples while the boys watched football and played risk (it was a pretty boring football game). It was my first time making them, and I think they turned out pretty good considering! Definitely going to do this again soon.

Caramel recipe:

2 1/2 cups of brown sugar
1/2 cup of butter
1 cup of light corn syrup
1 can of sweetened condensed milk

Bring sugar, butter, and corn syrup to a boil, then stir in the sweetened condensed milk. Stir on low to medium heat until medium call stage (drip some of the caramel into a cold glass of water, if you can pick up the caramel and roll it into a ball its good to go).

Dip your apples in the caramel making sure to let the caramel drip off the bottom (So you don't have a massive pool of caramel). Put them on a cookie sheet and let cool in the fridge.

Apples Toppings:

12-20 apples
White chocolate bark
Milk chocolate bark
Cinnamon sugar
Crushed health bar
(There are so many things you can do here, don't limit yourself! We just used what we already had)

In the meantime heat up your chocolate (we did ours in the microwave according to the package).

For some we dipped in white chocolate and then added cinnamon sugar (tastes like apple pie) and others we dipped in white chocolate, cooled, and dipped in milk chocolate and then added toppings.

My favorite kinds of apples to use in this recipe is Granny Smith, but any apple will work!
