Caramel and Candy Apples

Fall is the perfect time to enjoy apples at the height of their seasonal goodness. After you’ve made the apple pies and applesauce, whip up some candy and caramel apples to share with the little ones in your life. These recipes make it easy to enjoy these goodies. 

Candy Apples 
To prepare your apples, wash and dry them completely. Insert a wooden skewer or Popsicle stick into each apple. Butter a cookie sheet and set aside. In a heavy saucepan, mix 2 cups of sugar with 3/4 cup of water, 1/2 cup light corn syrup, and a few drops of red food coloring. Bring to a boil, without stirring. Allow to boil until the mixture is 290 degrees on a candy thermometer. Dip each apple into the mixture, turning the apple until it is completely covered. Take care, as the mixture is very hot. Set each apple on the cookie sheet and let cool completely. Makes about 8 candy apples. 

Caramel Apples 
To prepare your apples, wash and dry them completely. Insert a wooden skewer or Popsicle stick into each apple. Butter a cookie sheet and set aside. In a heavy saucepan, place about 48 unwrapped caramels (a 14-ounce bag). Add two tablespoons water or milk. Heat over low heat until the caramels are melted, stirring constantly. Dip each apple into the mixture, turning the apple until it is completely covered. Set each apple on the cookie sheet and let cool completely. Makes about 8 caramel apples.
