Let neighbors and friends know what a blessing they are to you with a decadent caramel apple. Sold in stores for $10 or more, they are quite inexpensive to make–only about $1.50 each. Best of all–no cooking is required!
The key to making the apples is to use the pre-made caramel sheets found in the produce section of the grocery store. For longer shelf life, use hard tart apples such as Granny Smith or a Washington apple.
Wash and dry the apples, removing the stems. Next remove the caramel sheets from the packaging and gently stretch over the apple, tucking and smoothing around the bottom of the apple.
Press the stick into the top of the apple. Drizzle melted chocolate (white or dark) over the top of the apples by microwaving chocolate squares until soft enough to spoon over apple.
Apples can be covered in a variety of toppings such as: chopped nuts, sprinkles, mini-M&Ms, chocolate chips, crushed Oreos, and Butterfinger candy bars. Press the toppings into the caramel.
