In a 2 quart size sauce pan mix together the following ingredients:
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
2/3 cup white corn syrup
2/3 cup butter
1 cup of cream
1 tsp. of salt

Cool mixture until it thickens slightly. Quickly dip each apple into the caramel mixture, twist apple around in the mixture until it's evenly coated on all sides.After caramel if desired you can also dip apple into nuts or m&m's Drain on waxed paper.
