Hi. I'm Kevin Wray from Peterbrooke Chocolates here, and today we're going to teach you how to make caramel apples on a stick. You're going to start off with a nice Granny Smith apple, we recommend these because they have a nice tartness that goes well with the caramel. We're going to take the stem off just by simply holding it and twisting the apple and then we're going to wash the apple well, but we're going to rub it with a towel, we don't want to add water to the apple at this point because that's going to make the caramel hard to stick. So we're just going to rub the wax off the apple now we got a nice shiny apple. And we're going to take a wooden dowel or a paper apple stick and you're going to hold it and take it straight down through the core of the apple. You want to be careful not to go through the bottom and then when you set it up that your apple sits upright. Next we're going to start off with a very high quality caramel and you want to make sure you have enough in your dish so you can completely dip the apple easily. So we're going to get in the microwave and start melting down so we can cut our apples. And we're going to start off with about 5 minutes, you're going to stir in between to make sure the caramel mixes and doesn't burn on the sides, so about every 2 minutes. Alright, we've got our caramel out of the microwave and as you can see it's a nice thick constancy, but still liquidy enough to work with. So we're going to take our apple and we're going to press it down in to the caramel and go ahead and bring it all the way to the edge of the top of the stick and you pull it out and this beautiful caramel starts running off and I like to use a knife just to kind of turn it and scrape the bottom so we don't end up with too much extra caramel. Now our caramel apple is ready, we're going to put in the refrigerator to cool and you're ready to eat. Enjoy.
