Homemade Caramel Apples (Using a Slow Cooker)

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

Along with candied apples, we always look forward to caramel apples in the cooler months. These caramel apples are super easy . The caramel is melted in a slow cooker and the crisp apples are dipped into the caramel to set. I turn on the slow cooker to low and in about an hour , the caramel is melted and ready to use. The longest part of this recipe is unwrapping two whole bags of caramel.

Homemade Caramel Apples
2 bags caramel candies , unwrapped
1 T milk
10 small apples
10 popsicle sticks

1. Place all of the caramels into the slow cooker and put on low heat.
2. Meanwhile, clean and dry the apples and place a popsicle stick into each one.
3. Lightly grease a cookie sheet. set aside.
4. after about and hour , stir the milk into the caramel. It should be creamy and melted. If not, put the lid back on the slow cooker and heat a few more minutes.
5. Holding each apple by the popsicle stick, dip and turn the apples into the caramel, letting the excess drip off. Place each apple onto the greased cookie sheet to set.
* you have to work pretty quickly to get the caramel coated on each apple. I use a butter knife to spread the  caramel around the apple.
