Caramel Apples


8-10 Granny Smith Apples (with popsicle sticks)

1 c. butter

1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk

2 1/4 c. brown sugar

1 c. corn syrup

1 t. vanilla


Wash and dry apples. Stick popsicle sticks in the stem. Place aluminum foil or wax paper sprayed with non-stick spray on 9×13 pans.
Melt butter and brown sugar together over medium high heat, stirring constantly. Add in sweetened condensed milk and corn syrup and keep stirring constantly! Heat until 245 degrees (keep stirring!) on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into cup of very cold water forms a firm ball that holds its shape until pressed. Immediately remove from heat and add vanilla.
Roll apples in caramel and place on foil/wax paper lined pan. Allow to cool for 2 hours. (My girls we to impatient to wait so we ate them right away:)
