Who is ready for halloween?!? Are you planning on dressing up this weekend? I am! Keep an eye on my Instagram (@natalieparamore) to see what I am dressing up as this weekend.
I have always loved the idea of caramel apples, but I usually wind up in a sticky mess after trying to eat one. I love this rendition of caramel apple slices. They are much easier to eat and still just as delicious! Plus the addition of kosher salt makes them the perfect sweet treat for grown ups. Afterwards I thought it would be fun to do one side dip chocolate and one side salted caramel. I hope someone tries this idea this weekend! If you do, send me a pic and I’ll post it!
To make these salted caramel apple slices, you’ll need:
Apples – I used Granny Smith apples
Melting caramel or candy apple caramel wrappers
Wooden sticks- you can use craft sticks or wooden kebab skewers like me! I like to use items I already have around the house.
Parchment paper and non-stick spray
Option: dip chocolate
Start by washing and slicing the apples. Don’t use the slices that contain seeds or part of the core. I actually used the slices with seeds to test out the process. Make those your “practice” ones.
Melt the caramel according to the packaging. I used caramel melting bits that I melted in the microwave with a little water. I found these in the baking aisle.
Poke the skewer in the bottom of the apple then dip the slice into the caramel, covering all sides. Sprinkle the kosher salt on the caramel. Place on a sheet of parchment paper sprayed with non-stick spray. After you finish dipping all of your slices, let them harden in the fridge for about an hour.
If you try and rush the fridge part (like me, fail) your caramel will begin to slide off. This is another example of how patience pays off!
The salted caramel apples tasted great! A very fun treat for Halloween.
These would be fun to make at a party!
