Mini Caramel Apples

| October 12, 2011 | 4 Comments

This is a treat that I can’t wait to try! This recipe is extremely simple and a great way to spend time with the kids. You know it’s becoming that time of the year where kids have a class party just about every other week, and this recipe is awesome to send them to school with and share with the class.

What you will need:

  • 4-inch lollipop sticks
  • Melon baller
  •  Granny Smith apples (one apple makes about 8 minis)Butterscotch or peanut butter chips
  • Chopped nuts, nonpareils, sprinkles, shredded coconut, or any other topping you can think of that would go good with apples. (I thought crushed Oreos or mini chocolate chips would be a good idea)
  • Small paper candy cups

 

5 Simple steps:

  1. Cut the lollipop sticks in half at an angle. The pointy end is how you will be able to poke the stick into the apple bits.
  2. With the melon baller scoop little balls out of the apple. Each ball should have some of the apple peel on it.
  3. Push half of the lollipop stick into the peel of each ball and then pat them dry. Patting them dry helps the peanut butter or butterscotch stick better. I noticed this issue when I made chocolate covered strawberries for the first time.
  4. Melt the chips according to the directions on the package. Dip and swirl the mini apples into the melted chips and then roll them into your favorite topping.
  5. Place the mini apples in the paper candy cups to set. They will set faster if you place the candy apples in their cups on a cookie sheet and stick them in the fridge. Also I like my fruit cold even if it is covered in candy goodness, so sticking them in the fridge is what I like to do.

    This seems like a really nice dessert! We are having our reunion next month and I cannot wait to try this out. I hope I can make it right, though, so that it comes out perfect.

      They are so simple to make, I actually made some of them a few days ago and they were delicious. Though I will say cutting the lollipop sticks was hard, but tooth picks made a nice replacement :)

    My nieces and their moms will be visiting two days from today and I would like to try this out. If I can stand not eating them first, of course, haha. Thanks for this delicious blog.

      I had a hard time not eating them as I was making them, but there’s actually a bit of apple left over so you can always cut out extra pieces just for yourself :D
