A few weeks ago Landon and I saw beautiful (and expensive!) caramel apples in a candy store window. He wanted one (and so did his mama), so I told him that we would try to make them.
Ta da! They were surprisingly easy, and really yummy!! As an added bonus, they look very festive and cheery on my kitchen counter. Here's how we did it..
1 package of Brach's Milk Maid Caramels
2 Tbsp of water
8-10 small apples
8-10 craft sticks
Toppings (see below)
1. Wash apples and remove stems. Insert a craft stick into each one.
2. Melt the caramel and water over very low heat (about 5 minutes).
3. Using a spatula, "paint" the caramel over the surface of an apple.
4. Immediately begin covering the apple with toppings. You might have to press them into the caramel...it hardens very quickly! For our toppings we used sundae nuts, candy corn, and sprinkles.
Enjoy!! We sure did! :)
