Basic Caramel Apple

Boiling this right now and it's going on 25 minutes - the candy thermometer reads 225 and a cold water test is not showing soft ball stage yet. The recipe says this should take about 10 minutes. I calibrated my thermometer beforehand. Am I doing something wrong, or can cooking time vary? (I am at sea level, would this make a difference?)
