Instructions
  1. Push the popsicle sticks or wooden sticks into the top of the apples. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
  2. Place sugar, corn syrup, and bourbon in a large saucepan (be sure to use a large pot with high sides). Bring to a boil, boil, without stirring for 9 minutes or until light golden. Add the heavy cream, butter, vanilla, and salt, slowly stirring into pan. Boil until candy thermometer reaches 235 degree F, stirring frequently. This took me a total of about 25 minutes.
  3. If you are coating your apples in nuts and or candies, have them ready to go in prep bowls.
  4. Dip each apple in caramel, allowing the excess caramel to drip off and then roll the bottom half of your apple through the nuts if desired. Place on baking sheet lined with wax paper. Repeat with remaining apples.
  5. Let the caramel apples set for about 15-30 minutes (in the fridge or on the counter), then drizzle each apple with melted chocolate if desired. Let the chocolate harden. Apples can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days.
