Michigan’s Best Apples; Do You Love Them Caramel or Candy?
The arrival of fall in Michigan has brought tasty treats of autumn. The kids will be getting tons of candy on Halloween. Cider and donuts have become a food group. Candied apples and caramel apples are back in season, which do you prefer, Michgander?
Caramel apples are tasty and I love picking some up this time of year. Some caramel apples are easier to eat than others, a few leave my teeth feeling like they are going to fall out of my head. Candied apples have a candy coating, these are delicious too.
What's the difference between a caramel apple and a candied apple?
Sugar Creek Recipes backs that up:
Although they are quite similar, the biggest difference between candy apples and caramel apples is that candy apples have a hard candy coating made from sugar and corn syrup while caramel apples have a caramel coating made from brown sugar, heavy cream, butter, and corn syrup.
