Making a Burke Caramel Apple

 
  1. Use granny smith or your favorite sour apple.  Using a sour apple will give you a better contrast with the sweet caramel and less likely to brown quickly
  2. Wipe down apples for any wax coating or dirt.
  3. Dry apples and let sit until they are at room temperature.  If apples are cold there is a possibility of caramel sliding off due to moisture.
  4. Take out stem and push a wooden skewer in the top.
  5. Heat up Burke’s Perfecto in microwave.  Starting with 30 seconds, stir, 30 seconds, stir, 30 seconds, ready!
  6. Submerge the skewered apple into the hot caramel and spin until the apple is completely covered and excess removed.
  7. Place the dipped apples onto a greased surface, such as a sheet pan with pan grease.

*For a fun alternative….dip the apples into the caramel and then chopped roasted peanuts or almonds for a delicious treat.  Or even drizzle chocolate over the caramel or both!apples
