  • Summary

    Making caramel apples was one of my favorite things as a kid. Fall was in the air and Halloween was right around the corner. These caramel apples are better than I remember because they’re coated not only with sweet, creamy caramel, but with candy. And everything is better with candy.

    Ingredients

    • you will need a lollipop or wooden treat sticks, parchment paper, and a candy thermometer
    • 6 apples (green or red, use your favorite)
    • 6 decorative lollipop sticks or wooden treat sticks
    • 6 SNICKERS®, 6 TWIX®, or 3 cups M&M’S® Brand Chocolate Candies, finely chopped (or 2 SNICKERS®, 2 TWIX® and 1 cup of M&M’S® Brand Chocolate Candies if you want to make 2 of each)
    • 2 cups granulated sugar
    • 1/4 cup light-colored corn syrup
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream, divided
