Last year, I had this idea. I thought it would be fun to put together a Fall Dessert table photo shoot with my friend Melissa. We then shared our recipes from the table. I wanted to Re-feature the Caramel Apples with you today. They were so easy to do, are such a fun Fall Food item to make and with actual sticks used in the apples, they add so much to this time of year!
When I think of doing Caramel Apples, I think.. EEEEk! Too crazy, too hard, too messy! But guess what? I was wrong! Madi helped me do these and they were sooo simple!
I found some bags of caramel bits at the store in the section where Chocolate Chips are sold. I love these because there is no unwrapping of the caramel! I bought 2 bags. That ended up being enough caramel to cover about 6 apples.
Washed the apples with water and baking soda to remove the wax and help the caramel to stick.
I LOVED how this part turned out. I went in my back yard and gathered some sticks. I cut them on an angle at the end that would be inserted into the apple.
Inserted them into the apples. I thought this would be hard, but it really wasn't bad at all.
Now its time to melt the caramel.
This bowl has two packages in it, so I added about 4 tablespoons of water. Put it in the Microwave for a minute at a time. Did this for 3 minutes. After each minute, took the caramel out and stirred it.
Dipped the Apples in the caramel and placed them on wax paper. Next I melted some Nestle White Chocolate Chips. I added around 5 - 6 tablespoons of water to this. Melted in the microwave a minute at a time, taking out to stir. Did this for about 2 minutes. Drizzled the white chocolate over the caramel on the apples...
Let them dry for a bit and ta-da! Finished! Displayed them on some cake stands. I love this log cake stand of Melissa's. I thought the sticks in the apples went well with it!
I'll share with you the Zuchinni Cake recipe too again. It is the best ever, I promise!
I loved doing this dessert table with Meliss. We had fun putting it together and our families LOVED eating all of the goodies when we were done!! Thanks Friend!
Have a Great Day!
With Much Love & Gratitude,
