Caramel Apples

All You OCTOBER 2009

  • Yield: Serves 8
  • Cook time: 20 Minutes
  • Prep time: 10 Minutes
  • Chill: 15 Minutes
  • Cost Per Serving:$1.07

Ingredients

  • 8 small apples, preferably Granny Smith (about 3 pounds)
  • 2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter

Preparation

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Stem, wash and dry apples and insert Popsicle sticks in center of stem ends. Fill a large bowl halfway with ice cubes and water.

2. Combine sugar, corn syrup, cream and butter in a medium-size, heavy-bottom saucepan. Cook over low heat, gently stirring once or twice, until sugar has dissolved. Increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring often, until mixture reaches 255ºF on a candy thermometer, about 20 minutes.

3. Set pan in bowl of ice water. Stir just until mixture starts to thicken into a dipping consistency. Working carefully, tip pan slightly to one side and spin each apple in caramel until thoroughly coated. (If mixture becomes too thick, reheat gently for a few seconds.) Transfer to lined baking sheet and place in refrigerator until caramel is cooled and set, about 15 minutes.
