Caramel Apple Bites

It’s been a few days but here I am with another recipe. Took a little break to welcome my adorable baby nephew 🙂 His name is Marco James and he was born on November 14th. He’s great, as is my sister, and I couldn’t be more excited!

Caramel apples remind me a lot of autumn, so this is the perfect time to make this easy and delicious snack. I will be sharing another recipe with caramel and apples in the near future, so come back soon. Wink, wink.

This recipe is incredibly easy. All you need is two ingredients for the base (plus water), but you can add as many toppings as you’d like. Chocolate chips, coconut flakes, sprinkles, nuts, etc, are wonderful choices.

You can also decide how much caramel you want to have. You’ll see in the photo that I submerged and drizzled bites. Both are easy to do and taste yummy. It’s all about your preference.

You’ll need:

  • Caramels (I used Kraft – you’ll need about 1 cube for every 2 bites)
  • Apples

Step 1:
Wash and peel your apples. You can use whatever kind of apple you want.

Using a melon peeler, scoop out your bites. I was able to get about 8 pieces per apple, but that number depends entirely on how big your apples are.

Melt the caramel squares. Add about 1 teaspoon of water for every 5-6 squares you have in your saucepan. This will prevent the caramel from burning and make the texture easy to work with.

Use the point of a knife or 1-2 prongs of a fork to hold each bite. Dip and set on a piece of wax paper to cool. If you are adding toppings, do this immediately before the caramel hardens.
*Note – be sure to pat the bites totally dry before dipping them in the caramel so it doesn’t just slide off!
