    8 small apples, such as, Granny Smith or macoun

    2 cups light brown sugar

    1 cup maple syrup

    1/3 cup light corn syrup

    1/2 cup heavy cream

    4 tablespoons unsalted butter

    Toppings of choice, optional, recipes follow

    Remove the stems from the apples and scrub them under warm water and dry them. Insert a chopstick through the top of the apple all the way to the top and line a baking sheet with waxed paper, set aside.

    Put the sugar, maple syrup, corn syrup, and cream in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook, swirling the pan but not stirring, until the mixture reaches 250 degrees F (firm ball stage) on a candy thermometer. Pull pan from the heat and stir in the butter. Tilt the saucepan and dip and spin each apple into the caramel, covering about 3/4 of the apple. Place on the prepared baking sheet until set.

    If using a topping spread the topping out on a sheet pan or wax paper and immediately roll the caramel coated apples in the topping. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet until set.

    Topping 1:

    2 cups chocolate wafers, graham crackers, or vanilla wafers

    Put the wafers or cracker of choice in a plastic storage bag and smash until coarse.

    Topping 2:

    2 cups walnuts or pecans, toasted

    1/3 cup dried cranberries

    1 tablespoon finely chopped crystallized ginger

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

    Spread the nuts on a baking sheet and toast until fragrant and brown, about 8 minutes. Pulse the nuts, cranberries, and ginger in a food processor until mixture resembles very coarse sand

    SERVES 8 -10

    Ingredients

    * 1 cup butter (no substitutes)

    * 2 cups packed brown sugar

    * 1 cup light corn syrup

    * 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

    * 2 teaspoons vanilla

    * 8-10 wooden sticks

    * 8-10 medium tart apples

    Directions

    Insert 1 wooden stick into each apple.

    In a heavy saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and milk; bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

    Cook and stir until a candy thermometer reads 248 degrees (firm ball stage) about 30-40 minutes and for a softer caramel cook to a few less degrees.

    Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.

    Dip each apple into hot caramel mixture; turn to coat.

    Holding by the stick, sprinkle with nuts or whatever you desire while the caramel is still warm.

    Set on generously buttered wax paper to cool (make certain to generously butter the paper).

    Note: if making a double recipe make two recipes in two separate pots.

    2 tbsp. butter

    2 cups light brown sugar

    6 tbsp. water

    Popsicle sticks

    8 to 10 apples (McIntoshes work well)

    Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the brown sugar and water. Stir until it has a smooth consistency. Gently bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 3 minutes, until the pan's sides get steamy and the mixture is thin but somewhat sticky. Remove from heat. Pierce the center of each apple with a Popsicle stick, then swirl in the caramel syrup until coated. Place apples on a greased cookie sheet to harden. Refrigerate for at least 1 to 2 hours. Serves 8 to 10 there is an easy one yummy
