  • 3 large Granny Smith apples
  • 18 sucker sticks
  • 1 1/2 cups caramel baking bits or caramel chews of choice
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • Optional Toppings: crushed nuts crushed cookies, sprinkles

Instructions

  • Peel apples.
  • Using a melon baller, scoop out apple balls.
  • Insert the sucker stick into the apple. Be careful not to puncture the stick through the other end.
  • In a small pot add caramel baking bits and heavy cream.
  • Melt over low heat, stirring constantly until completely melted.
  • Fill a small bowl with icy water. Set aside.
  • Thoroughly dry the apple with a paper towel to remove excess moisture from the surface.
  • Dip the apple into the mixture, swirling to coat and being sure to get the caramel on the stick a little. This will help keep out the water on the next step.
  • Immediately dip the caramel apple into the icy water for a few second to quick set the caramel.
  • Dry the caramel off gently with a paper towels.
  • Press the top of the caramel apple into desired topping if using.
  • Place caramel apple into the fridge or freezer to finish setting.
  • Remove from fridge of freezer.
  • Enjoy!
  • Repeat with all the mini caramel apples.

Notes

Do get the caramel down the stick about 1/4 of an inch to create a seal so the water won’t seep in.Be sure the water is super, duper cold and icey.Only dip the caramel into the water for a few minutes. You want a soft set, not a rock hard one.Gently dry the caramels off with a paper towel when they come out of the water OR place them right into the fridge or freezer. Be sure to squeeze the apple balls in a paper towel to remove the excess moisture BEFORE placing into the caramel. If caramel doesn’t cling to the apple then you did not dry it off enough. Source: https://divascancook.com/mini-candy-apples-recipe-candy-easy/
