Easiest Caramel Apples Ever

The big day is coming when, according to Peanuts’ Linus Van Pelt, the Great Pumpkin will arise from the pumpkin patch and bring toys and treats to all good boys and girls. That means it’s time to start thinkin about which tasty treats to make for Halloween night. One of our favorites is caramel apples, which we love for their sweet, sour, salty, crisp, gooey yumminess.

Easiest Caramel Apples Ever

Add to that the fact that we get to count them as a serving of fresh fruit and, if we add nuts, even a bit of protein thrown in, and they come as close to being Halloween health food as you can get! (OK, granted that’s a slight stretch, but the field in this category is pretty limited.)

The worst part about making caramel apples is dealing with the caramels. You buy that big bag of them and spend untold frustrating minutes wrestling with the wrappers. Then you melt the caramel in a bowl in the microwave, stirring often, or in a double boiler on the stove, again, stirring often. And then you have a sticky, caramel- coated bowl or pot to deal with at the end.

But there’s a better, easier, much less fussy way to go about it: do it with sous vide. You can even do it overnight. Simply begin the process and go to bed; the next day you’re ready to dip, roll, and enjoy.

Here’s what you’ll need and how it works:

Easiest Caramel Apples
Makes 1 dozen

2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) sea salt or more to your liking
12 baby Granny Smith or gala apples, washed and dried well
12 popsicle sticks or bamboo skewers cut to about 6 inches (15 cm)
10 ounces (283 g) semi-sweet mini chocolate chips for rolling*
10 ounces (283 g) finely diced walnuts for rolling*
(*substitute sugar sprinkles, coconut flakes, mini butterscotch morsels, crushed cookies or your favs)

1. Fill and preheat the water oven to 185F/85C.
2. Pour the sweetened, condensed milk into a small (quart/0.9 liter) zip closure cooking pouch and add the salt.

Using a Baggy Rack as your extra set of hands is helpful, both in this step and in the dipping later.

3. Use the displacement (Archimedes’) principle to remove the air and zip the pouch closed.
4. Submerge the pouch in the water oven and cook for 13 hours (while you sleep or do something fun)

5. When ready to coat, insert one stick into the stem end of each apple and pour the mini chocolate chips, walnuts, or other toppings into separate shallow bowls for rolling.
6. Open the caramel pouch and dip an apple into the caramel. Let the excess drip off and roll the coated apple in the desired topping. Set, stick up, on the wax paper lined baking sheet to dry. Repeat with remaining apples.

7. Refrigerate to harden and enjoy!

  1. Preheat SousVide Supreme to 185F/85C.
  2. Put 2 tablespoons (60 ml) of the olive oil into a skillet over medium high heat.
  3. When hot, add the stew meat and sear quickly on all sides to give brown the surface; remove meat to a large bowl and set aside.
  4. Add remaining olive oil and the butter to the skillet and heat until the butter has melted.
  5. Add the garlic and cook briefly, but do not brown.
  6. Sprinkle in the flour to make a roux, whisking continuously for about 2 minutes.

  9. Divide all ingredients, including the pan liquid, evenly between two large (gallon/3.8 liter) pouches, press as much air out of the pouch with your hands as possible (or use Archimedes’ Principle) and seal only.  (Do not attempt to vacuum seal liquids using a suction vacuum sealer.)
  10. Position the universal pouch rack with slots horizontally to hold the pouches in place so they do not float.  The food in the pouches must be fully submerged to ensure even cooking.
  11. Cook for at least 8 to 10 hours.

  • 1/4 teaspoon (2.5 ml) ground cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons (20 ml) light brown sugar

For the caramel sauce

  • 1 can (14 ounces/396 g) sweetened condensed milk

For the topping

  • 1/2 cup (33 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon (63 g) light brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon (0.6 ml) kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml). ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons (85 g) chilled unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup (60 g) chopped pecans
  • Butter pecan ice cream, optional, for serving



  1. Fill and preheat SousVide Supreme to 183F/84C.
  2. Make the caramel sauce by pouring the condensed milk into a small (quart/0.9 liter) cooking pouch, evacuate as much air as possible from the pouch with your hands, and seal. (Even easier: use SousVide Supreme Zipper Pouches and the Archimedes Principle to remove the air from the pouch and zip the seal closed.)
  3. Submerge the pouch in the water oven and cook for 6 and ½ hours or even over night. If not using right away, quick chill the pouch in an ice water bath and refrigerate.
  4. When ready to cook the apples, pour 1/2 tablespoon of the lemon juice into the middle of each cored apple, swirling to coat the inside of the apple.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar.
  6. Divide the butter mixture evenly among the apples, rubbing the mixture all around the inside of the apple and stuffing it well.
  7. Put apples, 2 per pouch, into small (quart/0.9 liter) pouches and vacuum seal tightly.
  8. Submerge the pouches in the water oven, being sure that the apples remain fully beneath the water surface throughout cooking, and cook for 1 and 1/2 hours. (If necessary, position the pouches in the slots of the pouch rack and invert the rack in the water bath to hold them into place, beneath the water surface, during cooking.)
  9. Reheat the caramel sauce in its pouch along side the apples in the last half hour of baking.
  10. Meanwhile, preheat the traditional oven to 350F/177C to prepare the crumble topping.
  11. In a small bowl, mix the flour, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
    1. Using two forks or a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour mixture until mixture resembles wet sand.
    2. Stir in the pecans.
    3. Pour the crumble mixture on a baking sheet and bake for 17 minutes or until golden brown.
  12. Serve the apples straight from the pouch, topped with a few spoonfuls of the topping, and drizzled with caramel sauce. If desired, add a scoop of butter pecan ice cream.
