Caramel Apples

Ingredients:

2 cups brown sugar

1 cup corn syrup

1 stick salted butter

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 tsp vanilla

8 apples any variety

Directions:

Combine brown sugar, syrup and butter in a large saucepan over med-high heat. Stir to combine. When butter is melted, add in the condensed milk. Attach the candy thermometer bring to a full boil. Mix constantly until the mixture reaches 250 degrees on the candy thermometer. When the caramel is at the right temperature, remove the pan from the heat and add the vanilla.

While the caramel is hot dip the apples in the caramel and allow the excess drip off. Arrange the apples on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and allow to cool completely before serving.
