Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year, I love spooky and being scared and Halloween plays right into that love!
I have been dying to make Caramel Apples for Halloween! I love them, especially when a tart apple is used, in fact I used Granny Smith apples for my Caramel Apples! The combination of tart and sweet is one of my favorite taste combinations.
I am really looking forward to Halloween this year, my house is decorated to the max, my pumpkin's are carved and I am having my in-laws over for dinner, it should be a fun time.
You will need the following
6 apples, your choice I used Granny Smith
Craft sticks or Chop Sticks
1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
3 tbl heavy cream
Halloween Sprinkles (optional)
Chopped nuts (optional)
Remove the stem from each apple and press a craft stick or Chop Stick into the top.
Place a layer of wax paper down on a jelly roll pan
Heat your Carmel's slowly in a small but tall pan, stirring often
As they start to melt, add your heavy cream, and continue to stir until all Carmel's are melted and it is nice and thick
Allow to cool briefly
Roll each apple quickly in caramel sauce until well coated then roll in your sprinkles or nuts
Place on prepared sheet to set, next time I would then immediately put in the fridge, so the Caramel does not slowly slough off
