Gourmet Caramel Apple Recipe

I made these Caramel apples for Tala, Masters of Baking & Icing since 1899. Caramel apples always remind me of Autumn and I love how you can decorate them in so many ways! I decorated these caramel apples with chocolate and nuts for a decadent Autumnal treat. Here's my recipe for Gourmet Caramel Apples...

Gluten Free

6 Apples

Method

Gourmet Caramel Apples

  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Dip apples in boiling water for a few seconds, then dry with paper towels to remove any wax. Set apples to one side, when completely cool, insert a wooden stick firmly into the bottom of each apple for a handle.

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  3. Stir butter, brown sugar, golden syrup, and condensed milk together in a saucepan over a low heat, stirring occasionally. Bring to a boil for about 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently. Cook until a candy thermometer reads 130°C. You can test that it is ready by a teaspoon of the syrup, dropped in a glass of cold water, should form a hard ball. Remove caramel from heat and stir in vanilla extract.

  4. Working quickly, carefully take each apple and roll in the toffee to coat completely. Sprinkle apples with any desired toppings while still hot. Leave to set on the parchment until hard.
