I love the holiday season. Spending time with family, friends, and of course all the baked goodies and treats. This year I wanted to attempt homemade caramel apples for Halloween and boy am I happy I did. To give them that Halloween touch I used twigs instead of wooden rods. Spooky huh? Ok maybe not that spooky, but that’s about as crazy I get around Halloween. I’m an easy scare. ☹️
Now let’s talk caramel.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
This recipe yields 5-7 servings
- 1/2 stick of butter
- 1 cup of Kayro syrup
- 2 cups (packed) dark brown sugar
You’ll also need:
- Apples (I used red, small to medium size)
- Twigs (one for each apple)
Step 2: After the butter is melted add the Kyro syrup & brown sugar.
Step 3: Stir continuously until the sugar is dissolved. Roughly 15 -20 minutes.
Tip: Put a drop of the sauce in a cup with cold water to check if the sauce is ready. If you can pick it out of the cup and form a soft ball then it’s ready.
Step 4: Put wax paper down for the apples then turn the burner down to low so you don’t burn the Carmel.
Step 5: Stick a twig in the center of the apple & dip it into the Carmel sauce. Twirl the apple in the sauce to get even coating. Set the dipped apple on the wax paper for 20-30 minutes to allow the Carmel to dry.
Optional: While the Carmel sauce is still wet, you can dip the bottom of the apple in sprinkles or any other type of candy. I opted not to do this. However, doing this will make it easier to peel the apple off the wax paper.
Step 6: Serve and enjoy!
Well, that’s it for this post. I hope you enjoyed my spooktacular caramel apple recipe. I would love for you to share your caramel apples with me if you decide to use my recipe.
Have a safe & happy Halloween! 🎃 Until next time friends. Xoxo
