Butterfinger Caramel Apples

Makes 5 apples
Prep time: 20 minutes
Note: Allow 1 hour to set

5 Granny Smith apples
5 wooden dowels or pop sticks
3 (2.1-ounce) Butterfinger candy bars
14-ounce bag caramels, unwrapped
2 Tablespoons half and half
1 teaspoon light corn syrup
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Wash and dry apples. Twist off the stem and place a wooden dowel or pop stick into the apples. Lay out a piece of wax paper to set apples on.
2. Place candy bars in a gallon-sized bag and crush into small crumbs with the back of a spoon. Place crumbs on a large plate. Set aside.
3. Place caramels, half and half, corn syrup and salt together in a shallow bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments on high stirring at each stop. Repeat until well melted. Stir in vanilla extract.
4. Roll an apple in caramel spooning some over the top. Let the excess drip off and spoon off the bottom. Dip the bottom in the crushed candy. Scoop up some of the candy and pat crumbs onto the sides of apples. Place apple on wax paper.
5. Reheat caramel between each apple for 15 to 20 seconds. Stir and repeat with the rest of the apples. If desired, trim bases of apples with kitchen shears.
