Caramel dipped apples
I decided it was time to dip some apples so here they are and how I did it...
1. Wash the apples and dry well.
2. Coat a piece of wax paper or a plate with butter.
3. Use pre-made caramels and follow the directions on the bag for melting. I made my own caramel last year...it wasn't any better and a WHOLE lot more work. Plus, the kids can open all the candies for you!
4. Dip the apples in the caramel and allow the excess to drip off. It will puddle some, so take it off the wax paper and cut the excess off. Redip them if you like it thicker.
5. Roll them in nuts if you want.
6. Melt chocolate chips in a saucepan. Place the melted chocolate in a ziploc baggie. Cut a tiny tip off one corner of the bag...now you have an icing bag.
7. Swirl the chocolate around the apple in a line. It's easier to just go back and forth rather than try to spin the apple around.
8. Place back on wax paper and set in the fridge for about an hour. Cut the apples in slices when you are ready to enjoy.
You can use all kinds of different nuts and other types of chocolate. My next batch will be white chocolate...yum!!
Have fun and get the kids involved...it's super easy! It only took me 30 minutes to make these!
