How to Make Salted-Caramel Apples

Step-by-Step

  • 1Put 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.
  • 2The 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.
  • 3Transfer the caramel sauce to a large bowl, and refrigerate until cool.
  • 4Line 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.
  • 5Roll each apple through the cooled caramel, then through the desired garnish. Place the apple on the baking sheet.
  • 6Refrigerate the apples to let the caramel set.

    Makes 2 cups of caramel sauce and 6 caramel apples.
