If one of these caramel apples hit Newton’s head, he may never have realized what gravity was because he’d be too busy eating.

  • Step 1

    If individually wrapped, unwrap the caramel squares and put in a pot with the pumpkin spice. Melt on low heat, about 15-20 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Put the white chocolate in another bowl and microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted.

  • Step 3

    Use a melon baller to scoop little balls of apple. Place a stick halfway into each piece.

    #SpoonTip: No melon baller? Just cut into cubes.

  • Step 4

    Dunk the apple pieces completely in the chocolate. Tap or swirl off extra chocolate and put them on a parchment-lined tray or other nonstick surface. Refrigerate until the chocolate is hard, about 10-20 minutes.

    #SpoonTip: To dry the outside, dab the pieces on a paper towel before dunking.

  • Step 5

    When the caramel is lukewarm, dip the apples. Let the excess drip off, and then cover them with whatever you want.

    #SpoonTip: Refrigerate the apples right after dipping for 30 minutes (or freeze) to keep the caramel from falling.
