Gramma Diane’s Caramel Apples



  1. Prepare apples by cleaning with a dry cloth and inserting popsicle sticks into the top as a handle.
  2. Melt butter, add sugar, corn syrup, sweetened condensed milk and salt.
  3. Stir until sugar has dissolved.
  4. Heat over medium heat for 12-15 minutes (it will be bubbling) or until it reaches 245 degrees Fahrenheit. (or “hardball” candy stage).
  5. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Caramel is incredibly hot. Use caution. Keep kids away during this time.
  6. Dip apples and place on a buttered baking sheet.
