Gourmet Caramel Apples

Caramel Apples are totally impressive & not quite as difficult to make as you'd think!  I wanted to share these Caramel Apples I made:

They're kind of like a Samoa (or Caramel Delite) apple - caramel, toasted coconut, mini chocolate chips, candied pecans & a drizzle of chocolate.

The beauty of caramel apples is that you can make them however you want to suit your tastes.  I also made some with mini M&Ms that I didn't get a picture of, but they were super colorful & fun!

Tips to make the process as easy as possible:

  • Have all your toppings ready before you start to dip.
  • Work quickly, one apple at a time.  Dip, then apply toppings right away.
  • Place finished apples on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Beware of wax paper!
  • Let the caramel set up for several hours before you move them around.
