Hot Caramel Apples

20 minutes cooking

4 Servings


Hot caramel apples (or other fruit) are a great treat at the campsite and can easily be made over a campfire or on a camping stove. This makes a special dessert or can be added over oatmeal, pancakes, or French toast for breakfast.

How To

  • Melt the butter in a heavy pan, tilting to coat the bottom of the pan

  • Add the condensed milk and cook on a grate over warm coals stirring frequently, until the milk begins to thicken and turn caramel colored (this should take approximately 15 minutes)

  • Add the apples and stir. Cook until the apples are warm - they should remain firm. 

  • TIP - If you like youre apples cooked down, the sauce will taste just as good, but may curdle from the reaction with the apple juice


  • Substitute fresh peaches or pears instead of apples

  • Add a little molasses or dark brown sugar to increase the caramel flavor

  • Add a teaspoon of cinnamon

  • Add some chopped nuts

  • Add a handful of chocolate chips! (Everything is better with chocolate)

  • Serve on oatmeal or pancakes for a breakfast treat

  • 1 Tablespoon butter (optional, but helps with cleanup)

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk

  • 3 - 4 medium apples, thickly sliced
