Caramel Apples Recipes

To make gourmet caramel apples you can use a family caramel recipe or you can make it from scratch. Caramel takes time and patience to prepare, so for these caramel apples it is recommended to use melted caramel candies. When making these apples with kids, I prefer to spend my time putting together fun candies to roll the apples in, and making yummy drizzles for the top!

Easy Caramel Apples
Makes 5-6 apples
1 (14 oz.) pkg. caramel candies, unwrapped; OR, 1 (11 oz.) pkg. caramel bits
2 tablespoons water
5 to 6 medium apples
5 to 6 Popsicle or craft sticks
Chopped nuts, cookies, or candies
Melted chocolate for drizzling

Start by washing the apples and drying them thoroughly. Remove the stems and insert sticks in the stem end, then refrigerate. Next, put the caramel bits or candies in a medium microwave safe bowl, add water and microwave on high for approximately 3 minutes until melted. Be sure to stop at one-minute intervals to stir. Once melted, set the caramel aside. Take the apples out of the refrigerator, and one by one, place one apple into bowl of melted caramel and swirl around until coated, using a spoon to cover apple. Carefully, remove the apple from caramel and let excess drip off. Add gourmet flair to your caramel apples by rolling coated apple in chopped nuts, cookies, or candies. Press in with hands to help them set in the caramel. If desired, drizzle chilled apples with melted chocolate. After each apple is decorated, place on greased waxed paper or aluminum foil and return to refrigerator to chill and set.

Store your finished apples uncovered in the refrigerator. Or, you can wrap each of them individually in cellophane bags. A good trick for storing apples in cellophane bags is to set each apple in a decorated cupcake liners before putting it in the bag. This makes it easier to get them in and out of the bag without sticking. If you plan to give out your apples, don't store them in the refrigerator, the cold air will make the apples sweat inside the bag and make a mess. The apples will keep for up to six days in bags at room temperature.

These gourmet apples are sure to be a sweet hit. They make great gifts, party favors, or classroom treats. They are simple and fun to make, and look like they came right out of a candy store!
