It is almost Halloween.

I used to love halloween when my kids were young. Making their costumes, decorating the house and making homemade halloween treats to give out to the trick and treaters.

Yes-years ago we were allowed to give homemade treats to the kids who came to our door. Sadly, its not allowed anymore.

I used to make popcorn balls, caramel apples and various chocolate treats.

Oh I miss those days.

I am sharing a recipe for gluten free caramel apples. While making the caramel takes a bit of time, it is well worth the effort in the end.

Caramel Apples


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups light corn syrup
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Apples(I had very large to small apples)
  • Popsicle sticks or wooden skewers
  • Melted white or dark chocolate
  • Chopped nuts or seeds, sprinkles or chocolate chips


  • In a medium saucepan melt the butter and brown sugar.
  • Once melted add the corn syrup and heat on medium.
  • Stirring and watching until it comes to a boil.
  • Add the condensed milk.
  • Add a candy thermometer to the pot.
  • Stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, cook until temperature reaches 250 degrees.
  • You don’t really want to leave the pot while this is cooking.
  • Remove and stir in vanilla.
  • Dip apples into caramel and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  • Let sit for 15 minutes.
  • Melt chocolate ave drizzle over apples and sprinkle with various ingredients.
  • Cool in refrigerator.
  • Enjoy!
