10 CARAMEL APPLE RECIPES YOU’LL GO GOOEY OVER

Oh my goodness, am I excited to try these caramel apple recipes! I mean, I love apples and I love caramel.

Apples are the best fruit for baking in my humble opinion. You can make apple pie, apple crisp, apple bread, apple cake, apple donuts, and the list just goes on from there. They are also so great and nutritious to eat raw. My favorite snack at the moment, I actually just finished eating one while writing this, is a cored & sliced apple thrown into a bowl with a couple sprinkles of cinnamon, a quick tap of ground clove, and a tablespoon or less of brown sugar. Shake the bowl until the slices are coated and then eat. So good!

I love caramel in general. For example, when I get an iced coffee, its a caramel iced coffee. If I have a choice between hot fudge or caramel to top my ice cream sundae, I definitely choose caramel. For me caramel makes pretty much every dessert even better!

All of these caramel apple recipes I’ve gathered below are just begging me to eat them up!

BEST APPLE TO USE FOR CARAMEL APPLES

The standard apple that most gourmet apple makers use when making caramel apples are Granny Smith. They are firm and tart and because of this, they balance the sweetness of the caramel and toppings. Some however, find the Granny Smith apple too tart or sour and would opt for a slightly sweeter choice.

A couple apple types that are a bit sweeter are Pink Ladys, Honeycrisps, Jongolds, Jonathans, Pippins, and Cameos. The trick when choosing an apple is making sure it isn’t too sweet or too mushy. You want a firm, crisp apple. Red Delicious apples for example, would not be a good choice for caramel apple making.

HOW TO GET THE CARAMEL TO STICK TO THE APPLE

A little trick of the trade courtesy of Simply Kierste Design.

Lightly sand the skin of your apple with a fine grit sandpaper. Don’t sand too much. You don’t want to remove the skin, you are just helping to remove any wax build-up and scrape the surface a little. Wipe with a damp cloth when done and let dry. This will help the caramel adhere to the apple instead of sliding down the sides as caramel does.

Instead of letting your apples cool with the stick end up and consequently allowing the caramel to pool at the bottom, try this genius hack.
