Caramel apples

Nothing beats the old-fashioned flavor of caramel apples when the caramel is made from scratch!

Number of Servings: 6
Prep: 10 min | Start to Finish: 30 min

6 medium apples
6 wooden skewers
1 sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
 Candy sprinkles, chopped candy or chopped peanuts, if desired

1. Wash apples and dry thoroughly. Insert a wooden skewer in stem end of each apple. Spray plate with cooking spray.

2. In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar, corn syrup, milk and salt. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, to 230 degrees F on candy thermometer or until a few drops of syrup dropped into cup of cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from water. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Cool slightly.

3. Quickly dip apples into caramel, swirling until completely covered. Dip bottoms in candy sprinkles. Place apples on plate until caramel is set.
