Made Caramel Apples today and wanted to share my favorite recipe (that I got from my sister Beth) with ya'll. Mine turned out a little firmer than I like (caramel is so tempermental), but they're still yummy, and the girls had a great time decorating them.
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 c. light Karo syrup
1 stick butter
1. Combine all ingredients. Stir constantly over medium high heat until soft ball, about 240 degrees (in Utah, due to sea level, this is actually about 230 degrees). Allow caramel to cool to 180 degrees.
2. Dip apples that have been washed, dried and chilled. Or dip pretzel rods.
