Whether you pronounce it as car-mul or care-a-mel, October is National Caramel Month. The sticky candy’s origins are somewhat hazy. Some believe it was created in Chicago in the early 1800s, while others believe the process to make caramel was an Arab invention, dating to 1000 A.D.

Caramel’s popularity increased after Milton S. Hershey started his first successful candy business in 1886, the Lancaster Caramel Company. Although Hershey sold his company in 1900 for the unheard of sum of $1 million to focus instead on making chocolate, caramel’s popularity remains to this day.

What better way to celebrate than by making your own caramel apples at home? No matter how you pronounce it, they’ll still taste just as sweet.
