Crockpot Caramel Apples

Caramel apple recipe for the crockpot or slow cooker.

Ingredients:

  • 2 packages (14oz each) caramels
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 8 medium apples, such as McIntosh, Gala, or Fuji
  • sticks for apples

Preparation:

In slow cooker, combine caramels and water. Cover and cook on high for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until caramels are melted, stirring frequently.

Meanwhile, line a baking pan with wax paper; butter the paper.

Wash and dry the apples. Insert a stick into stem end of each apple. Reduce crockpot heat to LOW.

Note: If the caramel does happen to scorch, put it through a mesh strainer and discard any dark particles. Put the sauce into a saucepan or back into the cleaned slow cooker and keep warm while you dip the apples.

Dip apple into hot caramel; turn to coat entire surface. Holding apple above pot, scrape off excess accumulation of caramel from bottom apple.
Place coated apples on prepared wax paper in pan. As you near the bottom of the pot, use a spoon to spoon hot caramel over apples. Put the pan of coated apples in the refrigerator to set thoroughly. Use caution if children are helping; the crockpot will probably be quite hot to the touch and the caramel could scald.

Makes 8 caramel apples.

Perfect Recipe, Member MamaChickee

I used this recipe for caramel apples at a fall festival. It worked PERFECTLY!!! I tripled the recipe, and it took less than an hour to melt and come together. I kept it on low heat for four hours, stirring occasionally when we weren't constantly dipping in it and it stayed nice and smooth, and didn't scorch at all. I would definitely recommend this recipe for anyone wanting to make caramel apples-all at once or over a few hours.
