I am so excited that fall is just around the corner. I love the smells, the holidays, and especially the food. One thing my mom use to make with us as kids was Caramel Apples. I finally got around to making some of our own.
Get some yummy fresh Granny Smith apples. Wash them well, and remove the stems.
Get your sticks and insert into your apples where you removed the stems.
Grab your caramels and unwrap. Or I found these great caramels that are small like pebbles. They are great and they even come with the stick inside the package. I’ve had a hard time finding them, but they are made by Kraft. Add 2 tbsp. of water or milk, and microwave for the time amount on the package, or about 2 minutes to start and then stir and microwave at 30 second intervals to get the melting right.
I like to pull out some wax paper and sprinkle a little powdered sugar on it to keep the apples from sticking.
Dip your apples in the caramel and let them drip off a little bit before you place them on your wax paper. Let them sit for just a minute or two before you add sprinkles or a dusting of more powdered sugar. I added some fun fall sprinkles, then placed them in cute little Halloween bags to take to friends.
Hope you enjoy! We sure did here!
