Here’s a simple recipe for making caramel apples at home:


  • 6 apples
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla extract
  • Popsicle sticks


  1. Wash and dry the apples thoroughly. Insert a popsicle stick into the stem end of each apple.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat the sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until it melts and turns amber in color.
  3. Add the butter to the sugar, stirring until it melts and the mixture is well combined.
  4. Slowly pour in the heavy cream, stirring constantly until the mixture is smooth.
  5. Remove the caramel from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  6. Dip each apple into the caramel, turning it to coat it completely. Hold the apple over the pot to allow any excess caramel to drip off.
  7. Place the caramel apples on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and allow them to cool and set for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Optional: You can also drizzle melted chocolate or sprinkle chopped nuts over the caramel coating for added flavor and texture.

Enjoy your homemade caramel apples as a sweet and delicious treat!
