Caramel Apples

We had great success with this recipe, although our apples were not that great. Next time I'll make sure the apples are nice and crisp before I dip them! I poured the extra caramel into a buttered dish and sprinkled it with pecans - yum!

2 cups brown sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Prepare apples by roughing with fine grit sandpaper - rinse and dry competely, then insert popcicle sticks.

Combine the first 3 ingredients. After the butter is melted, stir in the milk.
Cook to soft ball stage (230-240 degrees). Stir constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in 1 tsp. vanilla.

Let the caramel cool slightly, then dip apples and roll in nuts if desired. Place on Silpat to cool completely.
