Caramel-Covered Apple Slices

All right, so this afternoon I had a bit of a craving for caramel-covered apples. When I looked in the cabinet and discovered that we had no caramel, I decided to make some. Just thought I'd share the recipe with you!

Okay, so for the caramel, you'll need
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 stick of butter or margarine
  • a large saucepan
  • a spoon
Melt the butter on low, then add in the brown sugar. When the sugar has dissolved into the butter completely, pour in the sweetened condensed milk. While stirring, very very slowly raise the temperature to high until the mixture is thick and golden brown. It should take about 15-20 minutes tops.
(Another alternative for easy caramel is just to boil the entire can of sweetened condensed milk for 2 and 1/2 to 3 hours, but I didn't have time for that.)

I then used an apple-cutter to make some apple slices...

And dipped them in the caramel. Then I set the slices on a sheet of wax paper.
When that was done, I put them in the freezer until the caramel was hard. Voila! Caramel-covered apple slices.
My family apparently thought they turned out pretty good because they devoured all of the apples when they were done. :)

(Note: Sorry about the poor quality of the pictures, but the lighting in our kitchen is horrible.)
