Pat's notes for this recipe:
These are simple caramel apples , using Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk and no actual caramels. These will become your favorite your favorite way to make caramel for any caramel apple recipe- no unwrapping each caramel. This recipe is so easy, you will want to make your own Eagle Brand SCM for this recipe., because you want them again and again, using different toppings.
OMG these are sooo good!

Wash and dry apples;remove stems. Insert sticks into stem end of each apple. Line cookie sheet with parchment or waxed paper and spray with cooking spray.
Melt butter in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add SC milk, corn syrup and brown sugar. Stir until blended. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low " cook" 15-20 minutes, stirring constantly, or until candy thermometer reaches 225^. Remove from heat . Stir in vanilla.
Dip each apple into hot caramel, spooning caramel over apple to coat evenly. Allow excess caramel to drip off. Scrap bottom of apple with edge of spoon. Place on wax paper. Sprinkle immediately with bacon pieces. Chill 30 minutes. Allow to come to room temperature before serving.
