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.
Apples (I used granny smith)
bowl (to melt caramel)
1 T. water
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.
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).
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!
