Caramel apples are a good winter treat and kids have fun decorating them. Use sprinkles or crushed nuts if you prefer.

Makes: 8 caramel apples

  • 8 apples
  • 1/2 cup thickened cream
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup glucose syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • sprinkles, to decorate

Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Poke ice block sticks into the apples deeply enough to hold them firmly.
  2. Place the cream in a saucepan and warm it very slightly.
  3. In a separate saucepan, combine the sugar and glucose syrup. Cook over medium high heat until the sugar has melted, about 7 minutes. Swirl the pan occasionally until the mixture turns deep golden, another few minutes.
  4. Slowly add the warmed cream to the syrup - watch out for splutters! Remove from the heat and pour into a mixing bowl. Let rest 5 minutes.
  5. When the caramel has thickened, dip in an apple. If caramel drips off, let rest another 5 minutes. Coat the apples by dipping and turning them to get an even coat. If the caramel gets too thick, rewarm over a double boiler.
  6. Place the apples on baking paper to cool and harden and decorate with sprinkles if desired.
