8 apples


  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • ½ cup half-and-half

  • ¼ cup butter

  • ¼ cup corn syrup

  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 8 caramel apple sticks

  • 8 apples


  1. Stir white sugar, brown sugar, half-and-half, butter, corn syrup, cream of tartar, and salt together in a large, greased saucepan over medium-low heat until caramel mixture boils. Reduce heat to low; cook without stirring until caramel reaches 240 degrees F (115 degrees C) on a candy thermometer, or until a small amount dropped into cold water forms a soft ball, about 25 minutes.

  2. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Line a baking sheet with greased parchment or greased wax paper.

  3. Insert a caramel apple stick into the middle of each apple. Dip each apple into caramel mixture and turn until fully coated. Place apples on prepared baking sheet until caramel cools completely.
