Anyone here have this new 2007 calendar that has recipes by Nestle ?

Their Caramel in the month of October looks really good.
It is one of those from scratch recipes and not just melting Caramel candy (w/c I also do BTW). They also have other good recipes in there.

I can post the Carmel recipe if anyone is interested. It uses Butter Finger, brown sugar, corn syrup, condensed milk butter and vanilla xtract. icon_smile.gif

Caramel Candied Apples

Caramel Candied Apples Enjoy the sweeter side of life with this playful recipe for Caramel Candied Apples. Dipped in a homemade caramel sauce and rolled in chopped candy bar pieces, these fun-to-eat apples are a special treat for kids of all ages.

Estimated Times:
Preparation - 20 min | Cooking - 30 min | Cooling Time - 1 hrs refrigerating | Yields - 12

Ingredients:

12 wooden craft sticks
12 large tart apples, washed, dried and stems removed (very important to wash well or caramel will slide off)
Nonstick cooking spray
About 12 ounces assorted NESTLÉ Candy Bars, such as Butterfinger or Crunch, finely chopped
1 pound box dark brown sugar
1 can (14 ounces) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Directions:
INSERT stick into each apple. Line trays or baking sheets with wax paper; spray paper with nonstick cooking spray. Place chopped candy bars on separate plates or mix together on one plate.

COMBINE sugar, sweetened condensed milk, corn syrup and butter in medium, heavy-duty saucepan over medium-low heat. Heat, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes or until sugar has dissolved. Attach candy thermometer to inside of saucepan. Increase heat to medium; cook, stirring frequently, for about 20 minutes or until mixture reaches 236° F on thermometer. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla extract.

DIP apples all the way into caramel mixture, shaking off excess. Roll bottom half of apples in chopped candy bars, then place on prepared trays. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until set. Store apples in refrigerator in airtight container.

TIP: To clean the apples, quickly dip them into very hot (not boiling) water mixed with about 1 tablespoon vinegar. This will remove all the wax.

We ate ours within a week and it was still soft, chewey and tasty. I just made some more today and I'll keep one of my turtles as long as I can as an experiment. It doesn't take long at all - of course I was busy cooking other things at the same time - it is SOO easy. I'd say 20-30 minutes total cooking time. I think these would make tasty favors. Good luck and enjoy icon_biggrin.gif
