Thanks, Linda…for reminding me that I had wanted to repost this recipe! Yikes! Hope I’m not too late for everyone to enjoy it this year! Mmmmmm! So good!
1 c. Sugar
¾ c. Light Corn Syrup
1/8 t. Salt
1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
¼ c. Butter
1 t. Vanilla
In a saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, salt and sweetened condensed milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly to very, very soft ball stage (for dip). Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Serve with sliced apples.
Caramel Apples will also require:
10 Medium Apples (Washed and dried, of course.)
10 Popsicle Sticks
Begin by inserting Popsicle sticks into center of apples and set aside. Place a length of waxed paper on a cookie sheet, butter it and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
Combine sugar, corn syrup, salt and sweetened condensed milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly to soft ball stage.
Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Working quickly, cover apples with caramel and place on buttered/sugared waxed paper.
Note: Another fabulous recipe from my mom (Patsy C. States Reed)! There are so many recipes of Mom’s that I cherish. This is definitely one of them! I have yet to taste a yummier homemade caramel dip or caramel apple!
