Good Morning Ladies and Gents,
I run a candy apple business and I am looking to make a new caramel to coat my candy apples in. I use white sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, butter, and evaporated milk (as I don't want to have to store or buy new ingredients). The first batch that I made was insanely sticky. The second batch I made was much better, but still just a little too sticky in my opinion (I added extra butter in the second batch).
What can I do to make it not so sticky, but sticky enough to stick to the apple. When I say it was too sticky I mean you couldn't even get it out of your teeth (first batch). Any suggestions?
