  1. Is the “eagle brand milk” in the recipe sweetened condensed milk? Or is it just regular canned milk that people sometimes put in their coffee?
    This recipe looks great and I’d love to make it for Christmas this year, thanks for posting. 🙂

  2. It is the sweetened condensed milk, not the evaporated.

    Oh my!! Words cannot describe how wonderful this caramel recipe is. I made several times over Christmas and EVERYONE raved about them. I mean EVERYONE! I made a batch one day and my husband, daughter and I ate the WHILE batch in two days. We couldn’t stop eating them!! One word of advise……DO NOT USE WAX PAPER……make sure you use parchment paper. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It is definitely a favorite and will be a “pass down ” family recipe.

  4. Approximately how many caramel apples does one recipe make?

  5. Are you using salted butter?

  6. I have never heard of flour in a candy recipe. What does the flour contribute? Could it successfully be eliminated? Thanks.
