Filled Apples

I have a real treat for you today!  Instead of craving those caramel and candied apples from carnivals, here is a fun and easy way to get the taste right from your kitchen.  I even threw in a healthy option.



1 can sweet condensed milk
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup white Karo Syrup
6 medium apples

1.   Combine condensed milk (yes, it is supposed to look like that), sugar, butter, salt, and Karo Syrup in a large saucepan.
2.   Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly, until it reaches 240 degrees.
3.   Cut apples into half from top to bottom and core them.
4.   Place on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.
5.   Pour caramel into the apples once it has reached 240 degrees.
6.   Pour the rest of the mixture into a shallow baking dish.
7.   Let cool.
8.   Slice into wedges and serve.



2 cups sugar
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon red food coloring
6 medium apples

1.   Combine sugar, water, corn syrup, and food coloring in a medium saucepan.
2.   Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly, until it reaches 290 degrees.
3.   Cut apples into half from top to bottom and core them.
4.   Place on a baking sheet covered in buttered parchment paper.
5.   Pour candied mixture into the apples once it has reached 290 degrees.
6.   Let cool.
7.   Slice into wedges and serve.



Peanut Butter
6 medium apples

You can use whichever apples you like. I was just craving Granny Smith's at the time.
