The “Apple Pie” Caramel Apple

What’s more ionic than apple pie? I am actually not a fan of apple pie- honestly, I can’t stand it! However, its still the first thing that pops into my mind when I think of apples.


I had to re-create it for apple pie week! It may not taste exactly like pie, but it has that cinnamon sugar sweetness that pairs so well will apples. Since I am not a crust person, using cinnamon cereal or cinnamon graham crackers was the perfect substitution for the crust.

As with all the caramel apple recipes this week, I am not including measurements for the toppings, as I want you to feel free to customize them as you please!!

The “Apple Pie” Caramel Apple


  • Caramel:
  • ¼ cups Butter
  • 1 cup White Syrup
  • 14 ounces, fluid Eagle Brand Condensed Milk
  • 2 cups White Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • Apples
  • crushed cinnamon cereal or cinnamon graham crackers
  • melted white chocolate
  • cinnamon sugar


  • Assemble all ingredients: wash and dry apples, insert sticks, and butter a cookie sheet or like cookie sheet with silicone baking mat.
  • Heat all ingredients except vanilla in a heavy 2-quart saucepan over medium/low heat, stirring constantly.
  • When caramel reaches soft ball stage (235°F–240°F) remove from heat and add vanilla. Let cool a few minutes. I like to pour the caramel into a preheated slow cooker to keep warm.
  • Using the stick inserted in the apples, dunk apples in the hot caramel and twirl slowly away from the heat for a couple of minutes.
  • Dip apples in crushed cereal and drizzle with melted chocolate. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over melted chocolate.
