How to Make Caramel Apples: Caramel Apple Day

Nothing says Fall like Caramel Apples, and October 21st is Caramel Apple Day!

ApplesBiting into the apple by biting through that sweet caramel shell is just such a delicious experience. I love the candy apples with red candy coating on them too.

Apples are wonderful at any time, but the caramel just adds a whole new dimension to the flavor of this tasty treat.

How to Make Caramel Apples:

This recipe makes 5 caramel apples.

Type: Candy Recipe

Garnish with: nuts, Rice Krisipies, sprinkles
Prep Time: 20 – 25 min
Cook Time: 45 min
Yields: 5 caramel apples



  1. Wash & dry apples.
  2. Melt caramel with water in the top part of a double boiler over boiling water on low heat.
  3. Add to caramel mixture, butter, brown sugar, salt, light corn syrup & dark corn syrup.
  4. Stir until sugar dissolves – about 6 min. Wash sides down with a brush dunked in warm water.
  5. Place a candy thermometer into the pot & cook at medium until the mixture boils. Re-wash down sides, and keep cooking until the mixture reaches 245 degrees F – firm ball stage, approximately 20 – 30 min.
  6. Remove from heat, and with a wooden spatula or spoon, slowly add in heavy cream.
  7. Place the candy thermometer into the mixture again and let the temperature rise until the mixture gets to 245 degrees F – not higher.
  8. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla extract.
  9. Skewer apples & dunk into sauce, twirling until properly coated, and allow to stand upright with the apple at the top.
  10. When set, stand apples on wax paper.
  • Note: If you wish, you could also roll in ground nuts, while caramel on apples has not yet set, and turn upside down on waxed paper.

Caramel apples are one of the tastiest treats of Autumn, and now you can make them for Caramel Apple Day.
