One of the best months of the year has arrived. Crisp and crunchy leaves starting to fall to the ground, pumpkin spice everything, apple picking and cooler weather; perfect for bon fires with friends. Don’t forget the s ’mores!
I'm sharing a quick + easy snack / dessert today, featuring 2 simple ingredients - Apples and caramel. All you need is a couple of green apples, chewy caramel candies, popsicle sticks and a dab of olive or vegetable oil.
First, I used a melon baller and cored out 5-7 “mini apples”, depending on how large the apple is. I then took a paper towel and wicked away any moisture left on the apple to help the caramel stick. Take your popsicle sticks, cut them in half and then carefully stick them into the tops of each apple and set to the side.
Microwave the caramel candies, I used Whether's Original, in 20 second intervals. Be careful not to overheat! Once the candies are melted down to a silky smooth consistency add the tiniest drop of olive oil. Seriously people, the tiniest drop you can get; the oil is only used to help the caramel latch onto the apple. Take your apples and generously dip into the bowl of caramel. Set to the side onto parchment paper and let cool. Add sprinkles if you wish & enjoy!
I tried making these a few weeks ago and miserably failed by using the wrong kind of caramel. Make sure to use chewy caramel candies and not caramel dipping sauce. :)
