I have been on a huge Caramel Apple kick lately.

Of course not any caramel apple, but specialty ones like from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Kilwins.

Luckily for my wallet, we don’t live close to any specialty chocolate shops that do dipped apples.

At $10 a pop, I just can’t justify my craving for the price for one single apple.

So eventually my thriftiness outweighed my laziness and I decided to start making my own!

In my head, I had worked it up to be a lot more work.

I knew making the caramel and melting the chocolate wouldn’t be difficult, but I did worry that all the steps would take a lot of time.

Honestly the most work is making the caramel, but even that’s not too bad!

Then the fun part starts where you get to dip the apples and top them with your favorite toppings.

This recipe is easily customizable to your favorite toppings.

I coated mine in chopped up Heath Bars, because I am a Heath Bar fanatic.

However, you could do anything from M&Ms to your favorite nuts, or a fancy drizzle of white chocolate. It’s totally up to you!

Prep Time45 minutes
Total Time45 minutes


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 2 cups Dixie Crystals Dark Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 6 large granny smith apples
  • 6 popsicle sticks
  • 12 ounces milk chocolate chips
  • 4 Heath Bars, chopped


  • Wash and dry apples; place sticks in cores and place on a baking sheet in the fridge to chill. Line counter with parchment paper.
  • In a large saucepan over medium heat combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and sweetened condensed milk.
  • Stir with a spatula over medium heat until sugar dissolves, about 10 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high; cook caramel at rolling boil until it reaches 236°F (on a candy thermometer), stirring constantly.
  • Remove caramel from heat and stir in vanilla extract and salt. Pour caramel into a bowl. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes. This allows caramel to thicken slightly.
  • When caramel cools, dip each apple into caramel, completely coat apple and lift apple out, allowing excess caramel to drip back into bowl. Set caramel apple on parchment paper. Repeat process until all apples have been dipped. Let caramel apples cool until caramel is no longer sticky to the touch, about 20 minutes.
  • Melt chocolate according to package instructions. Dip each apple into melted chocolate to completely coat apple and lift apple out, allowing excess chocolate to drip back into bowl. Quickly sprinkle chopped Heath Bar onto chocolate layer and set apple back on parchment paper. Repeat process until all apples have been dipped and sprinkled.
