Almost no one has never bitten into a red or green juicy apple! But why stop there? I love the addition of my homemade, buttery caramel to create a taste that just screams, “Fall is here!”
Are you ready, here we go!
First clean and dry 6-8 apples. I used Jonagolds, Empire, Red Delicious, and Honeycrisp.
Insert a craft stick or clean twig into each apple.
While the apples await their glorious baptism in sweet caramel, you must prepare their bath!
In a heavy bottom saucepan, bring to a boil:
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 1/4 cup brown sugar
– 1/2 cup honey
– 1 cup heavy whipping cream
Stir with a wooden spoon. Keep a glass of cold water nearby. After 5 minutes, drop a drizzle of the caramel in the glass. Fish around and if you can form it into a firm ball, its ready! If not, cook for a little longer, but be careful, it’ll be done soon! Remove from heat and stir in:
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
Allow caramel to cool for about 2 minutes and get ready to dip. Dip apples in caramel, swirling to evenly coat.
After dipping apples you can roll them in various toppings:
– chopped candy bars
– Sprinkling of sea salt
Here’s one with a white chocolate drizzle and chopped snickers:
