Doesn't this little beauty look, well, beautiful?!
It's an Apple Pie Caramel Apple- my very favorite!
Apples dipped in caramel alone are yummy, but these are delectable...
Wanna find out for yourself?
Start with either Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples, small to medium.
Slip your sticks into the tops and let them lie in wait...
I make caramel from scratch, using my Mom's treasured recipe-
this is the real key to making these so yummy I think :)
If you have a caramel recipe of your own, go with that.
Or unwrap bulk caramels or caramel baking bits and go with that...
Or... alright, alright:
You can click and copy, then paste into Word for a quick recipe card!
give your caramel a titch to cool, then grab those waiting apples and dip away!
Let them cool completely before adding the Apple Pie goodness :)
Mix about 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon (I really only ever just eyeball these)
and set aside in a small bowl.
Most other apple pie apples I've ever had use a mixture of just white sugar and cinnamon
for the outer coating, but the brown makes them much better, I think!
Melt one bag of white chocolate chips or half a brick of Almond Bark.
(a two-four cup size measuring cup works great for melting in)
Dip your cool caramel apples into the white, kinda twisting as you dip.
Immediately after pulling the apples out,
start shaking your cinnamon/ brown sugar mixture over the top.
Make sure NOT to roll the apple in the mixture, instead grab fingerfuls by hand
and shake in on, twisting to cover the whole thing really well.
Set on a greased cookie sheet or cutting board to cool... then devour!
Doesn't that taste divine?? :)
Just thought I'd share my little FAIL in the process of making my own...
This is what happens when you overcook your caramel
but don't realize it until far too late in the game...
toffee anyone? :P
And this is what my adorable baby does while Mom works in the kitchen...
Seriosuly makes me laugh! I know I shared this little escapade of his earlier,
but wanted to include these pics too :)
Enjoy those apples!
