This is the beginning I make caramel apples and will not be the last. While I found the theifs to be easy in making there were some things to keep in mind.
I used organic granny smith apples and no matter the reason kind of apples you used you should wash them fantastic with soap and hot water and sand them gently by having a fine grit sandpaper to clear out the waxy coat so your caramel can stick.
I started coating the apples without completing this last step plus the caramel would not stick….so guess what? I had to sand the apples and let my caramel sit for a while, Bad!
I had a substantial amount of pictures I got taking while preparing the apples on the other hand lost all of them. My storage device would not read the pictures I had been taking and also computer wouldn’t upload them either i absolutely had to reformat the invite and as a result I lost every single shot….about 100 belonging to the them 🙁
The pictures you see listed here are pretty much for the completed product without the process. At least there is something.
Anyhow, that is going to be my super baking week yesterday just in time for Christmas gift bag preparation. Excited but overwhelm…….lets learn how it goes
These caramel covered apples are often the bomb. 2 or three bites i had enough 🙂 It is gives you the sugar fix want it!!
These caramel apples were sensational.
These caramel apples would be a really nice and sweet TREAT 🙂 Making use of Granny smith apples off sets the sweetness of the caramel and chocolate you can use some kind of apples you would like to.
This is how you can actually package the apples. Really easy and easy. You may earn it fancier utilizing colorful bows and staff 🙂
1/2 cup butter, 1 stick
2 cups brown sugar, packed
1 cup maple syrup
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk, I oftentimes tried organic
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
10-12 Apple sticks
12 oz semi sweet choc chips, melted, 1 bag
1 cup pecans, chopped
In a considerable saucepan set over medium high heat, melt the butter. Stir through the brown sugar minimizing heat to medium, stirring prior to sugar is dissolved. Add the maple syrup, mixing thoroughly, then stir in the condense milk and cinnamon.
Bring towards a boil, then cook, stirring often, so that the mixture reaches 235 degrees, (soft ball stage sensible can reach 245 if you\’d rather the caramel layer to always be harder) that will take as a minimum 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Immediately dip on the apples. Rotate the apple until it is actually well coated. Allow excess caramel to drip off then place apples even on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and enable to cool.
At this stage you can actually leave the apples as is also or decorate them in endless ways. I melted the chocolate through the microwave and used a spatula to hide each apple. If carrying this out coat one apple at any given time with the melted chocolate and immediately follow aided by the chopped pecans.
Let it sit before chocolate sets.
