The best part about these caramel apples is that you can customize them however you want— dress 'em up or keep them simple. The sky (or the grocery store) is the limit. I turned to the candy aisle for my topping inspiration, and it didn't disappoint. Here's how you can feel (slightly) more grown up without completely giving up your Halloween candy.
- Prep Time:15 mins
- Cook Time:10 mins
- Total Time:25 mins
- 5 apples
- 11-oz package soft caramels
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 package mini chocolate chips
- 1 package peanut butter chips
- 1 package shredded coconut
- 8 crushed graham crackers
- Rainbow sprinkles
Wash and dry apples. I recommend using tart apples to balance the sweetness of the caramel.
Unwrap individual caramels and melt in a saucepan on medium-low heat with two tablespoons of water, stirring constantly to avoid burning.
Once the caramel is smooth, reduce heat to low. Keep stirring occasionally.
Place all desired toppings in bowls. The more, the merrier!
Dip apples into caramel and roll in toppings. Allow apples to cool in the fridge. Enjoy!
