Quick Facts

Prep Time: 20 minutes

  • 6 wooden sticks
  • 1 package (14 ounces) caramel candies, unwrapped
  • 1/4 cup Karo® Light Corn Syrup
  • OR Karo® Dark Corn Syrup
  • Seasonal candy such as candy corn, candy coated chocolate pieces, candy coated peanut butter candies, etc.

Directions

  1. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper; set aside. Wash and dry apples; insert stick into stem end.
