Caramel Apples

Recently the State fair came to Oklahoma. We went and this year I couldn't have my favorite fair food: Caramel apples.

Since all caramel I have ever seen is made with corn syrup, I knew it was time to make my own. So that is what me and my mother did: We made caramel apples.
Our caramel didn't get hot enough so it came out very light, but still good, nonetheless.

Here is our recipe:

Caramel Apples

2/3 cup unrefined cane sugar
1/2 cup honey
2 dashes of vanilla
4 tablespoons of butter
5-6 Apples

Small pot
Wooden or bamboo spoon
Popsicle sticks or bamboo skewers for the apples
Wax paper or parchment paper

1.Lay out wax paper. Put Popsicle stick or bamboo skewer in each apple.

2. In a small pot, mix butter, sugar, honey together and simmer. Once it starts to bubble around the edges, start to stir constantly. Stir for two minutes. Take off heat and add vanilla and be careful not to burn yourself!

3. To coat the apples, hold apple over pot and use the spoon to coat apple with caramel. Lay coated apple on wax paper to harden.


  1. Oh, this has gotten my thoughts centered on making some caramel apples. It seems even better to roll them in pecans later :) If you haven't already, it would be neat if you would share this post on the Wednesday link-up at Deep Roots at Home! It really fits my vision for the link-up (great recipes and things of home) :)

      I would love to! But I am unsure how to. :\
