Caramel Dipped Apple Balls!

I don’t know about you but I seem to always have a sweet tooth. I’ve been eyeing a few delicious treat recipes on Pinterest and today finally decided to try one out. Caramel dipped apple balls! Today was the best of all days to make this yummy treat too! It started out warm and then became overcast and a bit windy/chilly, making it feel like an October afternoon! Which seemed ever so fitting for the treat I was making!

Anytime I have tried to make a dessert with melted caramel it has been a disaster. The caramel never hardens soon enough, the pretzel breaks, there always seems to be something! Unfortunately, that holds true to this experiment as well! I thought well maybe I wont write about it and I will try again another time, but I was able to get a few good ones and regardless of how they looked they tasted delicious!

It was fun to make no doubt, and just as delicious despite how they looked. This could be a great project with kids, lots of easy steps such as unwrapping the caramels, or peeling the apples and placing the sticks in them.. This is a great group dessert to have the next time friends are over and they can dress their own apples in the toppings of their choice!

       You will need:

  • 4 Medium/Large Apples
  • One bag of Kraft caramels
  • A bag of cake pop sticks
  • A peeler and a melon baller

Tips and Tricks:

It’s important to be sure and peel off all of the skin before using the melon baller or dipping the apples, the skin will make the caramel slide right off. Another key note is to be sure the apples are room temperature when dipping them, and that the caramel is cooled and slightly thickened before dipping the apples.
