Tasty Tuesday: Caramel Apples

A traditional American fall treat is candy or caramel apples.  Apples are fresh and in season this time of year in much of the country, so what better time to make them!  Here’s an easy recipe for them from The Pioneer Woman.

Added by Ree on October 24, 2011 in CandyDesserts

Prep Time 30 Minutes
Cook Time 20 Minutes
Servings 8 Difficulty Easy

Ingredients

  • 8 whole Apples (more, If Apples Are Small)
  • 4 packages (11-ounce Each) Caramel Melts
  • 2 Tablespoons Heavy Cream (a Little More Is Fine)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • Dash Of Salt
  • Toppings: Mini M&Ms, Crushed Pretzels, Kosher Salt, Chocolate Chips, Coconut, Crushed Pecans, Crushed Saltines, Etc.
  • Chopsticks

Preparation Instructions

Melt caramel with cream in a double boiler or glass bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Add vanilla and salt and stir until smooth.

Stick one chopstick in the bottom of each apple. One at a time, dip the apple in the caramel, coating it all the way to the base of the stick. Allow excess to drip back into the pan for a couple of seconds, then carefully roll the apple in whatever topping you’d like. (There’s a small window of opportunity for the toppings to easily stick!)

Repeat with all the apples, refrigerating apples as soon as they’re coated. Once cool, wrap apples with cellophane or plastic wrap.
