Karamel Apple Thanksgiving Recipe

Peyton Decker

This Thanksgiving, Kosmik Brands is ready to teach you how to put a twist on a classic holiday treat – Karamel Apples. They aren’t just a dessert, but they’re an experience that brings everyone together. You can make this a fun and interactive activity for the whole family to enjoy, or you can embark on this culinary adventure by yourself. So, grab those apples and let's make this Thanksgiving one for the books!

What You’ll Need

  • 6 green apples (Granny Smith preferred, but any type will work)
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Toppings: Karamel Apple Blasters, chocolate, chopped nuts, crushed cookies
  • Thermometer
  • Saucepan
  • Baking sheet
  • Wax paper
  • 6 skewers (or popsicle sticks)


  1. Wash and dry the green apples, and then insert skewers into the stem of each apple.
  1. Line your baking sheet with wax paper and place the apples on there.
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir this mixture continuously until it reaches 240°F on your thermometer.
  1. Remove the saucepan from heat once it reaches 240°F and allow it to rest for 1 minute.  
  1. Carefully dip your apples one-by-one into the mixture, coating them evenly and allowing the excess caramel to drip off.
  1. While the caramel is still soft on your apples, roll each one in your favorite toppings, and even add a gummy to the top. You have the ability to get creative on this part and add your own festive touch.  
  1. After decorating your apples in caramel and toppings, place them back onto the wax paper to set. Allow them to cool down completely before serving. You can speed up this process by placing your tray in the fridge.
  1. Enjoy your Karamel Apple Thanksgiving feast!
