Making Caramel Apples

Last October we started a new tradition: Making Caramel Apples!
Here are my pretty apples, I used Fuji apples this year.

Princess A was my official caramel opener. Princess G just wanted to eat them, which she did.Princess G did want to help melt the caramels. I completely forgot the recipe I used last year. I found one but it was for six apples. Since I only had four I re-calculated the amounts for four apples. Here is the recipe I used
(Can I just say I love this pan! It perfect for making English Toffee and caramel apples and so easy to clean.)
Four Caramel Apples
4 apples, washed and stuck with a stick
9.6 oz of caramel
4 teaspoons of water
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla
Melt caramel and water in sauce pan. Butter parchment paper to place apples on. Once the caramel is completely melted and smooth remove from heat and add vanilla. Dip each apple in caramel and scrap the bottom of the appple along the pan to remove excess caramel. Place on buttered parchment paper and place in refrigerator to cool.
Each of the girls got to dip one apple each. Don't they look yummy!
Of course the girls wanted to eat all of the leftover caramels.
After dinner I sliced up one of the apples and we all shared. We shared one each night and they tasted just as good on the fourth night. By the last night only Princess A and I were eating the caramel apple slices. Daddy and Princess G were tired of them. I have had enough caramel for another year. Now I have a desire to make some English Toffee, maybe the girls and I will make some tomorrow.
