Caramel Apples 4 Ways

Whether you call them caramel apples or candy apples, we've got tips for how to make caramel apples at home, plus four tasty dipping ideas!

Caramel or Karamel. No matter how you say it, we love ooey, gooey caramel on top of our favorite fall treat, caramel apples. We've got a few tips to help you make this at home. First, let's prepare our apples. -I'm using tart apples, but use whatever variety you prefer. Remove the stems from the apples and insert a skewer into the stem end then set the apples on a buttered baking sheet. Next, we'll make our caramel. In a saucepan, combine one 14-ounce package of vanilla caramels. Add 2 tablespoons of whipping cream. Cook and stir this mixture over medium low until completely melted. If the mixture becomes too thick, reheat a few minutes to desired consistency. Working quickly, dip each apple in the caramel mixture, turning to coat. If you wanna add toppings, now is the time. Try chopped nuts, crushed pretzels, or chocolates chips. Have fun and experiment with different flavors. Let your apples stand until set. And that's how you make this easy recipe for caramel apples right at home. Happy cooking.
