Caramel Apple Delights
By Candice Fink
Recipe | Variations | Apple Art

Growing up, I always remembered getting caramel apples from the local fairs in the fall. That delicious, juicy apple covered in its golden, sticky blanket of caramel was absolutely heaven! To this day I still catch myself drooling over them, but soon find myself cowering away after discovering the price for these delectable delights. Not this year, though! This time, I decided to save myself some moolah and make my own!

What You’ll Need:

6 apples
Wooden craft sticks (Popsicle sticks)
1 14-ounce package of wrapped caramels
2 tablespoons milk
Cookie/Baking sheet, buttered

Directions

  1. Wash off the apples with some vinegar and warm water, remove stems (if not already taken off) and insert a wooden craft stick into the top of each.
  2. Unwrap the caramels and place into a microwave-safe bowl. Then add the milk.
  3. Microwave for about 2 minutes (this may vary depending on your microwave) and stir when needed.
  4. After caramel is melted and smooth, start dipping in your apples. Be sure to coat the entire apple and then let any excess drip off before placing on a buttered cookie/baking sheet.
  5. After all apples are done, place in refrigerator for about 15 minutes or until caramel has hardened.
