If you haven’t already noticed, I love fall food, especially all the great things that can be made with freshly-picked apples. This one isn’t terribly complicated, but it’s one of the best ways in the world to eat a crisp juicy apple. But seriously…what doesn’t taste better covered with caramel and chocolate?
These are so much fun to take to a fall party to share, or even to give as fall gifts to teachers or someone else special in your life. Gourmet apples cost big bucks in specialty shops, but these are frugal, festive, and fun to make. Here’s how:
Gather your ingredients: caramels, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and apples. Try to find medium-large apples that are firm, without any bruises, and with flat bottoms so they’ll stand up straight. Wash and thoroughly dry the apples.
Place on another wax-paper-covered cookie sheet, and if desired, decorate with sprinkles, chopped nuts, toffee pieces, or anything else that would be yummy. They’re awesome plain too (that’s actually the way my family prefers them!)
To give as gifts, wrap in cellophane and tie with some curling ribbon. They’ll keep in the fridge for around a week…theoretically (they never seem to last that long around here!)
