  • Note: You could use 1 package of caramels (14 oz), if you don’t want to make your own caramel.


  1. Wash apples and remove stems.
  2. Pierce the apples, using thick skewers, craft sticks, or popsicle sticks, through the indentation where the stem was removed, creating handles for the apples.
  3. Taylor Candy, Canning and Deep Fry Thermometer - shop.cookingwithkimberly.comUsing a medium sauce pan with a candy thermometer, combine water, sugar, light corn syrup & peach vinegar and bring mixture to a boil on medium-high heat to dissolve sugar in water.
    • Note: Use a basting brush with water to wash the sugar crystals from the sides of the pot.
  4. Turn down to a simmer and allow mixture to come up to the heat of 245 degrees F.
    • Note: Swirl the pan frequently, but do not stir mixture.
  5. Wanna try Parchment Paper in your Cooking? shop.cookingwithkimberly.comCover a baking tray with parchment, coated with cooking spray, or greased wax paper.
  6. Take caramel mixture off of the heat & stir in heavy cream. Stir in the butter & vanilla extract with a dash of salt.
    • Note: Whisk smooth, if necessary.
  7. When caramel mixture is smooth, but very slightly cooled to a suitable thickness to adhere to the apples, test on a spoon to check whether or not it will stick to it.
  8. Plunge apples into the caramel mix, swirling and twirling the apples to get a good coating on each apple.
    • Note: If you aren’t satisfied with thickness of the caramel coating, dip the apples back into the caramel for a second coat after slightly cooled & hardened.
  9. Calphalon 4pc Nonstick Bakeware Large Cookie Sheet Cooling Rack Set - shop.cookingwithkimberly.comWhile you are twirling each apple, keep moving it around until the caramel has partially hardened on the apple.
  10. Then, place the apples on the parchment paper on baking sheets until fully hardened.


  • You could melt some chocolate and drizzle it over the caramelized apple.
  • Re-dip half of the apple in the caramel and roll it in chopped nuts or coconut.
