12 Wooden Skewers
½ c. Butter
2 c. Brown Sugar, packed
1 c. Corn Syrup
1 (14 ½ oz.) Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
White candy coating (color orange for Halloween!)
Or leave plain for those purists.
We also tried a Wilton flavored caramel called Butter Rum which has a really distinct flavor, like those round yellow candies wrapped in cellophane. Yum.
When sealed in this way, the apples will last two weeks in the refrigerator, so you can make them ahead of time.
Your guests can easily grab an apple to eat now or save for later.
BUT, we plan to have a food truck swing by around dinnertime and I want to donate the caramel apples to the gathering. As a final touch, I attached my business cards on the twist ties not only as self-promotion to the site (why not?) but also so all the new neighbors know who I am and which house I live in. In lieu of a card, you might add a Halloween greeting.
