1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

Cook, without stirring, 9 minutes or until lightly golden (about 260°). Stir half-and-half, vanilla, and salt into caramel. Simmer until candy thermometer registers 235°, stirring frequently.
Combine cooked and crumbled bacon and crushed pretzels in a bowl.
Stir peanut butter into caramel; pour mixture into a bowl sitting in a hot water bath. Swirl bottom halves of apples in caramel; dip in pretzel mixture.
