Dairy Free Carmel Apples
1/4 cup ghee /margerine
1 cup maple (or brown) sugar
1/4 cup brown rice syrup
1/2 tsp allergy-free vanilla
1/4 cup coconut milk
5 or 6 tart apples (with sticks)
1. In medium saucepan, melt ghee.
2. Stir in sugar, syrup, vanilla and milk.
3. Bring mixture to a boil and keep boiling for about several minutes until a candy thermometer reads 245 F.
4. Remove caramel from heat. Put a Popsicle stick in the center of each apple. When the mixture has stopped bubbling, swirl each apple in the caramel syrup to coat. Let the mixture thicken/ cool slightly, or it will be all runny and roll right off. Place apples on a well greased cookie sheet to harden.
