Bourbon Candied Pecan Caramel Apples

Ingredients
1
egg white
1
tablespoon bourbon
3
cups pecan halves, coarsely chopped
1/2
cup sugar
1/2
teaspoon salt
6
small tart apples (1 1/2 pounds total)
1
11 ounce package vanilla caramels, unwrapped
2
tablespoons whipping cream, half-and-half, or light cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil. In a medium bowl whisk together egg white and bourbon until frothy. Add pecans; stir to coat evenly. Sprinkle sugar and salt over nuts; stir to coat evenly.
  2. Transfer nuts to prepared baking pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until toasted.
  3. Wash and dry apples; remove stems, if desired. Insert a wooden skewer or popsicle stick into the stem end of each apple. Place apples on a buttered baking sheet.
  4. In a small saucepan combine caramels and whipping cream. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until caramels are completely melted, stirring constantly. Working quickly, dip each apple into hot caramel mixture; turn to coat (If caramel becomes too thick to coat apples, reheat over low heat.) Dip coated apples in desired amount of nuts. Set on the buttered baking sheet and let stand until set. For best results, serve the same day*. Place remaining nut mixture in an airtight container. Store at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
