Caramel Apples

Candy Apples

What you’ll need:

  • Green Apples
  • Caramel Candies (Or pre-melted caramel)
  • Chopped Peanuts (or any other topping of your choosing)
  • 2 tablespoons of water

What you’ll do:

  1. Place your caramel candy-filled pan over medium-low heat and add 2 tablespoons water. Grab a wooden spoon or plastic spatula and stir frequently until candy is completely melted. *If the caramel burns, it’ll get bitter. PLUS you’ll have to scrub your pan like crazy.*
  2. Place skewers or sticks in apples, for easy handling.
  3. Remove your pan from heat and work quickly to coat your apples in caramel. 
  4. As soon as you finish coating each apple with caramel, dip them directly in your toppings (again can be any toppings: crushed cinnamon cereal, chopped Reese’s Pieces, etc.)
  5. Once all your apples are coated, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate them until completely cool.
  6. Serve!
