I don’t know many people who don’t love the caramel apple suckers that you can buy at the store and Lilyshop had a web page on how to do them yourself, so I figured I’d give it a try.
You’ll need parchment paper or a silpat, candy sticks, caramels and apple jolly ranchers.
Lilyshop recommended arranging your jolly ranchers in this fashion so that you don’t end up with an elongated oval sucker.
Put them in a 350 degree oven for 4-1/2 minutes. Mine were bubbly on the edges but not quite melted all of the way in the middle.
I would suggest not using plastic sticks, but they’re all that I had. Twist the sticks in immediately to secure them in place.
Let them harden for five minutes.
Since I’m only making two suckers, I decided to put a handful of caramels on a plate instead of mixing them in a bowl with water. I put the caramels in the microwave for 30 seconds then stirred them up.
Then I slathered the suckers with the caramel. Now they’re in the refrigerator for an hour – actually until morning when I have to take one to work for my co-worker. They should be delicious! Can’t go wrong with jolly ranchers and caramel:)
