Dulce de Leche Apples

Caramel Apples Recipe.  Noted in Nashville.Dulce de Leche Apples

This is my new Halloween tradition.  Not for the trick-or-treaters of course.  These babies are for Big D and me . . . and maybe a friend or two.

Candy thermometer, schmandy thermometer.  I cook this caramel without a thermometer.  You don’t need one.  Just trust your eyes and your timer.

Here’s a tip.  If you’d rather slice and dip your apples, just add extra milk at the end.

  • Medium – Large Pot
  • 10 – 12 Apples (I recommend Honeycrisps)
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Pinches of Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Cup Corn Syrup (Try my homemade recipe here – Homemade “Corn” Syrup)
  • 1 Can Dulce de Leche (Found with the sweetened, condensed milk)

* Ingredients continued below pictures.
