Recipe: Caramel & Chocolate Covered Apples

                 

  Halloween is just around the corner, so I thought it would be a good idea to share my recipe on how to create caramel and chocolate covered apples. This is a fun and simple recipe that would be great to serve at an event, or a nice treat for the kids.

 The ingredients and preparation are provided below:

Ingredients

1 Pound of prepackaged caramel squares
4-6 Granny smith apples
Skewers or lollipop sticks
2 Tablespoons of milk
Optional: Jar of unsalted peanuts


Preparation 

1. Wash your apples and place them in the fridge for 20-30 minutes. This will make sure the caramel covers the apple properly. 

2. Take the apples out of the fridge and remove the stems from the apple. Next take your skewer or lollipop sticks and replace it in the spot where the stem would have been. You might have to push it in quite hard to get the stick to fit in the apple.

3. Add to tablespoons of milk to yout bowl of de-packaged caramels. 

4. Take your bowl of caramel and place it in the microwave for 2 minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on your caramel while it is in the microwave. Every microwave varies and some heat up food faster than others.

5. Remove the caramel from the microwave and stir it to get rid of any lumps and thickness. You want a smooth consistency.

6. Take the apples and begin to dip it into the caramel. You want to slant your apples so that you can turn them around in the bowl to get a nice even coat.

7. Optional: Dip you caramel coated apples into a bowl of peanuts. I choose to cut my peanuts to make it easier to stick to the apples, but it’s ultimately your decision. 

8. Place your apples onto a tray that has wax paper on it. 

9. Lastly put your apples into the fridge for 30 minutes.
