Homemade Caramel Apples.
I purchased a bushel of apples yesterday at the farmer’s market. Yesterday I made a large batch of applesauce. Next up, caramel apples for my kids. My youngest daughter has been asking and asking… so today, she hits the jackpot!
I started out using my caramel recipe and then after letting it cool for about 2 minutes.
6 medium to large sized apples (firmer apples are best), washed with stem removed
Toppings – Candy (M&M’s), sprinkles, pretzel pieces, nuts, melted chocolate etc.
Line a baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper.
Insert the popsicle stick into each apple. Then dip each apple into the saucepan with the caramel. Roll the apple around in the caramel to coat the apple evenly. Sprinkle your toppings onto each apple. Set on your lined baking sheet. Let the apples set up before serving. Enjoy!
