Bake/Cook time :
Yield :
8 servings


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup corn syrup
  • 2 cups well packed Imperial Sugar Light Brown Sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 popsicle sticks
  • 8 Granny Smith Apples

  1. Remove stem from apples and insert Popsicle sticks. Place on wax paper or silpat. Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan large enough to hold all ingredients (excluding apples) melt butter. Add sweetened condensed milk, corn syrup, brown sugar and salt. Stir to a boil, preferably using a heat resistant rubber spatula.
  3. On medium heat continue to stir until the caramel reaches 245°F.
  4. Remove from heat and pour in vanilla extract.
  5. Carefully tilt pan to obtain a deep caramel layer. Dip one apple at a time rotating in caramel until well coated. Remove from caramel and dip in chopped nuts. Place on wax paper or silpat.
  6. Allow to cool before consuming.
  7. Remaining caramel can be reheated and used for sweetening coffee. Soak the pan in water for easy cleanup.
