Caramel Apples
Recipe by Dragon

Happy Halloween Everyone! I've had fun with the #GreatHallowTweet Halloween BlogHop this week. Thank you Renee, from Flamingo Musings, for coming up with such a fun theme. Don't forget to visit my fellow ghouls and goblins to see what evil treats they've come up with.


To celebrate this most unholy day, I have made Caramel Apples for you. Enjoy!

Makes: 4

Ingredients:
20 Werther’s Original Chewy Caramels, unwrapped
20 Werther's Original Hard Candy, unwrapped
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4 granny smith apples, washed, dried
4 popsicle sticks

Assorted garnishes (candies, nuts, crushed cookies) (optional)

Directions:

1.Insert the popsicle sticks into the stem end of each apple.

2.Combine candies, milk and vanilla in glass bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals until the caramel is melted. Stir with a wooden spoon after each 30 second interval.

3.Dip apples into melted caramel until evenly coated. Allow excess caramel to drip off. Scrape bottoms of apples, dip the apples in the garnishes for decoration. (optional). You may have microwave the caramel again after a couple of apples.

4. Refrigerate at 30 minutes or until ready to serve. Let it sit a room temperature for 10 minutes before serving. Store leftover apples in refrigerator.

These look beautiful! My daughter and I were at the local mall last night, and we visited the chocolate shop that sells tons of different candied and chocolated apples, and yours looks just as good as the enticing ones they had on display. ~ Belle

Dragon, I stopped by to see if you had any turkey recipes for us folks in the US, and see you haven't posted in a few weeks. I remember weren't feeling well, then got better. I hope you're just busy and okay. If not get well soon.
