Apple Pie Caramel Apples

I love the caramel apples from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. I always buy one when we go on vacation or if it's a special occasion. They're about $6 an apple so they're pretty pricey but they're so worth it. I found a recipe to make them myself and I was so excited! It was actually pretty easy too. The recipe calls for a bag of caramels but I decided to make it with homemade caramel. Either way, they're delicious!

Apple Pie Caramel Apples
6 apples

Caramel:
1/4 cup butter
1 cup light corn syrup
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups white sugar
1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 bags white chocolate chips
cinnamon sugar

Wash and dry apples and insert sticks. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, mix together ingredients for caramel except for vanilla. Stir constantly until it reaches a soft ball stage, about 235-240 degrees. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Let cool for a few minutes. Dip apples into caramel and twirl around to coat completely. Place on parchment paper to set. Repeat with another coat of caramel.  Cool in refrigerator for about 20 minutes.

Melt white chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second intervals. Dip apples in chocolate to coat completely, then place on parchment paper to set. After it sets for a few minutes, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

*This recipe makes a lot of caramel. You can let the remaining caramel cool and cut into individual candies or use it for a caramel dipping sauce.
