I wish there was some way to put into words on this blog my love for caramel apples. i LOVE caramel apples.
to my husband they are an overpriced piece of fruit which every so often he turns the other way while I indulge an buy one.
They. are. incredible.
We have had some questions about our homemade caramel + apples...and I'm happy to say they = awesomeness.
wash and dry apples.
Step 2. stick 'em! I found these "corn skewers" for a $1 at walmart in the kitchen gadget isle. you can also use popsicle sticks.
Step 3. Make Caramel
(also posted at the below)
Spray wax paper with cooking spray.
Place wax paper on a cookie sheet.
Wait for caramel to stop bubbling. Then dip apple....swirl around.
hold up for excess to drop off.
using a knife scrape off caramel on the bottom, this will help so you don't have a huge foot.
Place on a wax papered cookie sheet.
repeat step 5 (I'm totally a double dipper)
in this pic can you see the back 2 rows have been double dipped the front rows have been dipped once- notice the difference?
place in fridge for 2-3 hours till caramel is set.
*if you are not going to add chocolate, but you are going to add toppings add them now!
Cover with melted chocolate/white chocolate and then your favorite toppings:
crushed candy bars (my favorite is butterfingers)
chopped choc chips
