Mini caramel apples

It's almost fall time. I can't wait! Pumpkins, Halloween, chilly weather, and apples! Here's a fun and easy treat to utilize some of those delicious apples you might be going out and picking. Actually, it's a delicious treat you can do any time of year - but I find it appropriate for fall time especially.

Here's all you need.
Apples (I used granny smith)
lolli-pop sticks
melon baller
bowl (to melt caramel)
sprinkles (optional)
not pictured
1 T. water
granulated sugar
sheet pan
wax paper
lemon juice

Use your melon baller to cut balls out of your (clean) apple. I tossed the apple balls with a little bit of lemon juice to prevent browning. You should be able to get between 7-9 balls per apple.

Take your apple balls and stick onto your lollipop stick through the "skinned" end of your ball.

Dip apple ball into your melted caramel. (Place caramels in a microwave safe bowl with 1T. of water and microwave in 1 minute intervals until smooth and melted).

Place on a wax paper lined baking sheet that has been sprinkled with a little bit of sugar.

Or swap out the sugar for some candy bits or sprinkles.

Enjoy within one day - but i'm sure they won't last that long.

Note - Not intended for children under the age of two. Reason number 1) because raw apples and gooey caramel can be choking hazards....

...reason number 2) because this is what happens when you take it away!


  1. Those look yummy! Wonder if they'd last longer in the fridge?? My kind of caramel apples...more caramel than apple!:)

  2. LOL! I missed this must have been posted while I was burning knee deep in making halloween costumes! Well I guess it's not too late to make some now!
