Vanilla Caramel Apples
I'm not at all suggesting that you should stop being concerned about little old ladies, I'm just saying if someone handed me a caramel apple, I wish I could eat it without concern of being poisoned or cut. That's all.
VANILLA CARAMEL APPLES (makes 6-8)
1 c. sugar
1 c. light corn syrup
1/4 c. butter, softened
small can evaporated milk
1 tsp. vanilla
candy, cookies, nuts, melted chocolate, etc. (optional)
1. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup and salt over low heat. Stir constantly until the sugar melts, and it reaches 244˚.
2. Slowly stir in butter and evaporated milk (do not allow the sugar to stop boiling). Continue stirring and bring back up to 242˚.
3. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla then dip apples into caramel - twirling as you lift them out of the caramel to remove as much excess as possible. Place on a buttered cookie sheet and let cool.
