This is so yummy. It's fun to dip the apples in caramel then chopped macadamian nuts, melted chocolate, or sprinkles.  You can cook this a little longer and dip your pretzels in.  This recipe came from my friend Katie.


1 Cup Karo Syrup
2 cubes Butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1tsp vanilla

Add everything to the pan except vanilla.  Stir constanly and cook till soft ball about 240 Degrees.  When it reaches that temperature remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

For pretzel caramel cook till firm ball about 260 degrees.

***If the caramel starts to stick to the pan it looks more like gravy.  I use a strainer to get the darker specks out.
