Thanksgiving Caramel Apples

October 29, 2014

Caramel Apple Ingredients

10 to 12 medium apples

4 cups sugar

1/4 cup corn syrup

1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 2 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces, softened 

2 cups heavy cream, room temperature

Special Equipment

Wooden popsicle sticks 

Candy thermometer 

Cooking Instructions 

1. Start by skewering the apples so that the sticks are inserted about two-thirds of the way through the apples.

2. Then, in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the sugar and corn syrup…

3. And stir it together with a wooden spoon as it melts.

4. Within a few minutes, the sugars will start to caramelize and turn color.

5. When the sugar has dissolved completely and the mixture has turned a deep amber color, turn the heat to low and add the butter.

6. Finally, add the heavy cream…

7. And whisk the mixture until it’s smooth and combined.

8. Turn up the heat to medium-high again. Cook the caramel until the thermometer gets to 245F to 250F, then remove the pan from the heat.

9. Let the caramel cool for 20 minutes, then dip an apple into the caramel, rolling it around to coat it completely.

10. Check the first apple. The caramel should coat it and begin to stick almost immediately. (If it does not, bring the caramel to a boil again and cook it for a few more minutes. Cool again before dipping.)

11. Repeat with the rest of the apples. Place them on a baking sheet lined with a baking mat or parchment paper and let the caramel cool and set completely.
