There is no treat more symbolic of fall compared to caramel apple.
Caramel apples are among Fall’s finest pleasures. They are not only simple to make, they are also super fun to personalize! Follow these easy step-by-step instructions and also have an autumnal treat very quickly!
Making caramel is not easy, and with no chocolate thermometer, no one is able. Within the situation of caramel apples, we choose a less challenging route—with caramel candies! (We recommend these Kraft caramels.) One bag can get you about 4 chocolate apples, so fill up accordingly!
Unwrap all of your candies and put these questions small sauce pan. While you are add it, assemble other ingredients too! Wash and dry your apples, stick Them with pop-sicle sticks, and put your toppings on the shallow plate.
Put your chocolate-filled pan over medium-low heat and add two tablespoons water. Grab a wood spoon or plastic spatula and stir frequently until chocolate is totally melted. (Which means NO protuberances.) Do not take your vision from the pan for too lengthy! When the caramel burns, it’ll get bitter. PLUS you will need to scrub your pan constantly.

Think: crushed cinnamon cereal, chopped Reese’s Pieces, multicolored sprinkles, chopped Oreos. other great tales as well as on.
Once all of your apples are coated, put them on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate them. This can help the caramel setup, so you do not have a slide-y, sticky mess whenever you serve them.
