Real Caramel Apples… not grapes

The caramel grapes… good, but caramel apples… they’re amazing. I think my favorite part of fall is caramel apples, but the store-bought ones just aren’t good. The apples are old and the core is usually really brown… kind of gross. So, we decided to make them ourselves. We winged it. They ended up tasting awesome, but we did have some issues with the caramel and the chocolate sliding down off the apples.

Key players… caramel, chocolate, apples, peanuts, candy, and sticks.

It was really as easy as washing the apples, inserting the sticks, melting the chocolate and caramel, and dipping and rolling the apples.


(our sticks were too long so we cut them)

(caramel pre-melting)


(crush peanuts/candy)


(dip the apples)



(roll the apples)


bam. done!  Or you can repeat the process with chocolate… I’d recommend it.




So good!
