Just a few days before Valentine’s I mentioned that Caramel Apples are one of my most favorite treats.  Both my daughters and my daughter-in-law echoed the same feelings.  Since I wanted to make some, but I didn’t want to eat as many as I would be making, I was excited hear this.  So I make some Caramel Apples to give all the female members of my family, for Valentine’s Day.   This recipe is one of my favorites because you can keep the Caramel ingredients on hand, and it is REALLY good Caramel.  You can find the original recipe here: http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/desserts/grandma-bettye28099s-caramel-apples/.  Here we go with my version…

Step 1:

6-12 apples (your choice of size and type, I love Galas)
1 can evaporated milk
2 cups granulated sugar
¼ cup butter
1 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
Decors or chopped nuts for embellishments

2 quart heavy sauce pan
Baking sheet
Parchment paper
On stick cooking spray
Candy thermometer
Rubber spatula
Glass dish (for left over caramel)
Sticks –one for each apple
