Caramel Apples

I LOVE caramel apples!! Last fall a friend of mine, Jen Larsen, from our old ward made these for enrichment and they were to die for.......White chocolate caramel apples!!!! What could be better? I made a bunch to give away to regret- that I did not keep more for myself!! I love these things!!
Tip- if possible make them in someone else kitchen....mine was covered in cinnamon, sugar, chocolate, and of course caramel!!!
Caramel recipe:
2 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cube butter
1 cup light Karo syrup
  1. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add one can sweetened condensed milk
  3. Boil 10-15 min stirring constantly or until real hard ball
  4. Wait 3-5 minutes the roll apples in caramel(don't dip whole apple, just slightly around making a light coat.
  5. Place apples on a sprayed or lined cookie sheet
  6. Cool completely!
  7. Melt white chocolate and roll caramel apples in white chocolate (I drizzled white chocolate on mine in stead of coating the whole thing---either way is great.)
  8. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture
  9. Return to cookie sheet to cool completely

note- the caramel recipes makes enough to cover 10-12 medium sized apples.

They look delicious Monica! i remember tasting them and I loved them! I'm afraid to try to make them myself. I think making a good carmel is scary. Afraid I'd scorch it? I might get brave one day :)

Yum! I bet Russ and Rylan loved those. You've inspired me to use the supplies I bought for caramel apples in cupboard. Can I come to your house to make them? :)
