Ingredients: 

  • apples, any color, size or shape
  • 1 bag of caramel candies, I love the mini bits they now sell. Or you can make homemade caramel to dip
  • wax paper
  • sticks – popsicle sticks, real sticks, mine are 10 inch wooden dowels
Caramel Dipped Apples Ingredients

Method:

1. Place your caramel candies in a microwave safe bowl and microwave them 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Depending if you use the whole bag of caramel or not, you might only microwave it for 1 minute total.

2. Place a stick into the center of your apple and press down until firm. Dip your apple into the hot melted caramel, swirling it around until it’s coated. Set the carmeled apple onto the wax paper to cool and set.

3. If you would like, you can get fancy and add another layer of melted candy to the mix. I’ve melted chocolate chips and dipped my apples a second time.

You can also dip them into crushed oreo, m&ms, sprinkles, nuts, cinnamon. YUM!

4. Chill your apples in the fridge to help them set, so they can be removed from the wax paper and place into treat bags.

Tip: Serve your candied apples cut. I have found they are so much easier to eat when cut into slices. Try to keep the apples in their shape with the stick and all.

  1. I want one! Caramel, white chocolate, cinnamon and tart crisp apples. It seriously doesn’t get much better. Btw, if your think “regular” chocolate would make these better, you’re wrong. I’m one of the few that are not chocoholics!
