How to Make Salted-Caramel Apples

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.
