Now you try! Here’s the recipe… 

YIELD

Serves 6

 

INGREDIENTS

6 Wooden Sticks

6 Granny Smith Apples, stems removed

1 cup Heavy Cream

1 cup Granulated Sugar

1/4 cup Dark Corn Syrup

2 tablespoons Unsalted Butter

Twine

 

TOPPINGS

Crushed Oreos

Plain M&Ms

Shaved Almonds

Crushed Peanuts

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups crumbled

 

RECIPE

Insert sticks into tops of apples. Wrap twine around stick.  Prepare an ice-water bath. Set aside.

Bring cream, sugar, corn syrup, and butter to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Clip a candy thermometer to pan, and continue to cook until mixture reaches 245 degrees, 10 to 12 minutes.

Place pan in ice-water bath to stop the cooking. Dip bottom of each apple in caramel. Using a spoon, coat apple halfway to three-quarters of the way up sides. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet, and decorate with toppings.

Refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes (or overnight). Enjoy.

Tip: Make sure if you are using crumbled candy that it has been chilled in the freezer. It will make the candy easier to crumble and break into pieces.
