Directions

Skewer the stem-end of the apples with popsicle sticks. Line 2 large rimmed baking sheets with wax paper. Place desired coatings in large shallow bowls.

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the sugar, butter, milk, corn syrup, maple syrup, vanilla, molasses and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil until it registers 236 degrees F on a candy thermometer, about 10 minutes. Immediately pour the caramel into a heatproof bowl; let cool to 200 degrees F.

Dip the apples in the desired coatings. Transfer to the prepared baking sheets to set and let cool completely.

    great taste, however I am not a candy maker. caramel slid right off the apple after I let it cool. turned to a grit after cooling. Any feed back would be helpful.

    I am a pastry chef and we used this recipe for our Halloween dessert extravaganza. We did a 10x batch. The recipe worked well, made a tasty and large quantity of product--after dipping our 150-something apples, we had about half our caramel left over. If doing a large batch, you may only need about 75% of the recipe. One change: we were out of maple syrup, so we just made up the difference with more dark corn syrup. The apples were a big hit! I am planning to make this at home in the smaller batch. It is an easy and possibly fool-proof recipe.
