Hi Scott, I tried your recipe for the caramel apples. I did not have dark corn syrup so i used the clear corn syrup. I did not have unsalted butter so used a low salt butter. When I finished making this recipe, the caramel did not adhere to the apple. I put the caramel into ice water to stop it cooking. It tasted nice, but I dont know what I did wrong. The caramel was still runny. It was the first time I ever cooked caramel. Anyway thanks for the recipe. Maybe I just have to keep trying.
