Well fall is here and it is almost time for Halloween so I thought we would make a traditional favorite this time of year. So with the help of my grandkids let's make some caramel apples.
One of our favorite fall snacks is caramel apples. However, we tend to shy away from making them because not only are they messy to make, frankly they are a pain to eat. This fun new twist, inside-out caramel apples, makes them easy to make as well as easy to eat!
What you will need:
1 14 oz bag of caramels
1 1/2 tablespoons of water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
How to make:
1. Heat the caramels and water in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until melted. Stir often.
2. Meanwhile, cut apples in half and remove the stem. Using a spoon or melon baller, remove the seeds and core of the apples leaving about 1/4" of apple.
3. Using a pastry brush, immediately brush "apple cups" with lemon juice.
4. After apples have sat with lemon juice for at least 2 minutes, use a paper towel to pat the insides dry.
5. Pour the melted caramel inside of the apples cups.
6. Sprinkle them with nuts if desired.
Once the caramel is completely hardened, the apples can be sliced into wedges.
