Homemade Apple Pie Caramel Apples #Recipe

A couple of months ago while enjoying a nice girls weekend my daughter and I stopped to get a caramel apple while doing some shopping. My daughter had never had one before and needless to say she is absolutely obsessed with them now! So my sister and I thought it would be fun to make some. Just check it out!

Doesn’t that look delicious!  That one had a layer of caramel, then white chocolate and then cinnamon and sugar.  And believe me it was yummy!

Here is the recipe we used and directions

Apple Pie Caramel Apples

Ingredients:

1 bag caramels
4-5 green apples
1 bag white chocolate chips or white chocolate candy melts
cinnamon sugar

Instructions:

  • Wash, scrub, and dry apples.  This is important or your caramel won’t stick because of the waxy film stores put on the apples
  • In a medium saucepan melt caramel according to the package.  We used a double boiler or you can melt it in the microwave on 50% power
  • Put a popsicle stick in the apple.
  • Dip in melted caramel and fully coat it
  • Place on parchment or wax paper that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  You must do this or the apples will stick to the paper
  • Cool them in the fridge until the caramel is set up.
  • Melt chocolate chips in the microwave or double boiler.  You can add a little shortening if the mixture is too thick.
  • Coat the apple with the chocolate.
  • Let it cool in the fridge just a little bit.
  • While it is still sticky sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar
  • Cool completely in the fridge.

We did one batch of these apples and then we did a batch of apples for the kids.  For the kids apples we dipped them in the caramel then in milk chocolate and then they picked their toppings.  Crushed up Oreo’s, mini m&m’s or sprinkles.  I thought a crushed up candy bar would have been yummy too!  We let the kids dip the apples in their topping and they had lots of fun doing that.

These can be made up to one day in advance and then stored in the refrigerator.  We probably had some in the fridge for a week and they were still perfect.

I thought these would be fun for thanksgiving, for friends birthdays or for neighbor gifts for Christmas.  Just wrap them up in a cellophane or a clear gift sack and tie with cute ribbon and it’s done!

    Oh my what a guilty dessert!! So tempting :)) Thank you for sharing! I will allow atleast one of them into my tummy this holiday season!

    What a great way to get the kids to eat their fruits!! I have a 5 year old son and he doesn’t really like eating fruits (he WILL eat some veggies though).. I bet if I did up the apple like this he would go to town on it!!!! Well, that is if there was any left for him.. I’d probably love them myself!
