As a kid, one of my favorite treats in the fall, were caramel covered apples. I remember making then with my Nana… that sticky caramel, mingling with that first bite of the crisp apple. Mmmmmm! My mouth is watering just remembering! Caramel covered apples have gotten a whole lot fancier since I was a kid! My new favorite fall treat? These DELICIOUS Oreo and Caramel Covered Apples!

Oreo and Caramel Covered Apples Recipe:

Apple (Pink Lady is my preferred kind of apple for this recipe. )

Apple preparation: 

To remove  the wax coating from store purchased apples you can dip them in boiling water mixed with a splash of vinegar for a few seconds remove and dry. Allow to cool. Push the round stick into the bottom of each apple.

Caramel Ingredients:

1 Cup margarine
2 Cup packed brown sugar
1 Cup light corn syrup
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 package Oreo cookies


-Separate the Oreo cookies and remove the stuffing in the middle. Put the stuffing in a bowl or in the trash.
-Put the Oreo cookie pieces into a zip lock bag using a rolling pin crush the cookie pieces into a fine crumb.
-Pour the crushed Oreos into a bowl, placing it next to the stove top.

-Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside near the stove.

-Using a double boiler, pour water into the bottom half just slightly lower than when the top pot sits in the bottom half. bring water to a boil.
-Using a double boiler, put the margarine, brown sugar, corn syrup and condensed milk int the top pot bringing the heat to a med-high. Raise the temp to a boil, constantly stirring then reduce heat to med.  Cook for 25-30 minutes or until a candy thermometer reads 248 degrees or when a teaspoon of the caramel is dropped into a glass of cold water it forms a firm ball.
-When this happens remove the pot from the heat stirring in the vanilla.
-Dip each apple into the caramel coating the apple and part of the wooden stick.
-While the caramel apple is still hot sprinkle the finely crushed Oreo’s onto the apple or if you prefer roll the hot caramel apple into a plate filled with the crushed Oreo’s.

Allow  the oreo and caramel covered apples to cool completely. If you’re not going to enjoy your covered apples within a few hours, wrap covered apple in some plastic wrap to keep things fresh and tasty, storing them in a cool dry place.
