Caramel Apples Ingredients

  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 3/4 Cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 apples


  • Attach a candy thermometer to a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add sugar, ¾ cup heavy cream, unsalted butter, and salt.
  • Whisk and cook over high heat until temperature registers 246ºF (firm ball stage). Turn heat off and carefully add ¼ cup heavy cream and vanilla extract.
  • Dip prepared apples into mixture, turning to coat and letting excess drip off. Use a spoon to baste hard-to-reach spots. Coat bottoms with preferred toppings, pressing firmly to adhere.
