Ingredients

Canola oil, for frying

14 ounces caramel candies, unwrapped

1/4 cup butterscotch chips

1/4 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 cup seltzer water

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 1/2 cup to dredge apples

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored, cut into thirds

12 wooden pop sticks

Cinnamon sugar, for garnish

Directions

Special equipment:
12 wooden pop sticks
  1. In a deep-fryer or heavy-bottomed pot, heat enough canola oil to come halfway up the sides of the pot, to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a medium-sized, heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat, add the caramels, butterscotch chips, milk and vanilla. Cook, stirring frequently with a rubber spatula, until well incorporated, melted, and smooth, about 8 to 10 minutes. Keep warm.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, seltzer, 1 1/2 cups of flour, and cream of tartar. Skewer the apples onto wooden sticks. Dredge the apples, first in 1/2 cup flour, and then into the batter. Fry the apples, in batches, in the deep-fryer until crispy, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels. Pour the caramel sauce into a small bowl. Dust the apples with cinnamon sugar and serve with the caramel sauce.
