Have you ever had the perfect bite of fall? Get ready for your life to be changed forever because there is nothing like these Stuffed Apple Pie Caramel Apples!
Take your sticks and turn the apples on their sides. Poke the stick through the filling area and into the bottom part almost through...but not quite all the way. Set on a cold lined tray. Refrigerate for an hour or two to set the cookie butter.
Time to make the caramel....
To make the caramel melt the butter in a medium pan over medium to high heat. Add the brown sugar, corn syrup and sweetened condensed milk. Whisk together. Cook the caramel mixture until it reaches 235 - 240 on a candy thermometer (softball stage). Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Let cool a few minutes.
Take the pan of apples out of the fridge and wipe any extra moisture or filling off of the apples. This will help the caramel stick. Dip the apples into the hot caramel and hold up to allow the caramel to drip up toward the stick. Using a butter knife wipe off any extra from the bottom. Set them on the cold lined pan and return to the fridge. Let chill for one hour.
