There is nothing quite like a sweet, sticky caramel apple on a brisk autumn day. The rich and gooey texture of caramel perfectly complements an apple’s crisp bite and the addition of chopped nuts is simply inspired.
But why stop there? We decided to embrace this autumn treat by setting up a full caramel apple bar, complete with a myriad of delicious dips and fun toppings.
We filled our classic ramekins with graham cracker crumbs, mini chocolate chips, shredded coconut, toffee bits, mini marshmallows and, of course, chopped peanuts.
Instead of whole apples, we skewered apple slices on lollipop sticks. The smaller portions allow for taste testing all sorts of delicious flavor combos.
To keep your apples looking fresh, try dipping them in a lemon-lime soda first. The citric acid wards off browning.
In addition to classic caramel sauce, we added melted dark chocolate and white chocolate to the menu, which yielded some pretty amazing creations. Our favorite? A s’mores apple slice, dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with graham cracker crumbs and mini marshmallows. Divine!
