Ingredients

2 c
sugar
3/4 c
butter, sliced, room temp
1 c
heavy cream, room temp
1 Tbsp
good quality sea salt flakes
6
apples, washed and dried
1 c
garnish -- chopped nuts, sprinkles, etc.
6
sturdy craft sticks, flat or round

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put the sugar, evenly, in the bottom of a heavy saucepan. On medium heat, warm the sugar 4-5 min. Watch carefully, but do not stir or disturb the sugar.
2
The sugar will suddenly turn golden brown and liquefy. When it's completely liquefied, remove from heat. Let cool for 30 seconds, then quickly stir in the butter, cream and salt.
3
Transfer the caramel sauce to a large bowl, and refrigerate until cool.
4
Line a baking sheet with waxed paper, or use your Silpat. Insert a craft stick into the top of each apple. Place each garnish in a small shallow dish.
5
Roll each apple through the cooled caramel, then through the desired garnish. Place the apple on the baking sheet.
6
Refrigerate the apples to let the caramel set.

Makes 2 cups of caramel sauce and 6 caramel apples.
