Autumn, a time for fairs and fall festivals. Apple picking and candy filled holidays like Halloween. Every fall we make candied apples with caramel- sometimes its just one, but never the less it is a right of passage into the cooler months that lay ahead.
4 Firm Crisp Apples (washed and dried well)
4 Sticks for Holding the Apples
4 Cupcake Wrappers
1 16 Oz. Bag of Caramel Cubes
4 Tablespoons of Heavy Cream
Candy Toppings of your Choice
Spray a microwave safe glass bowl with a little cooking spray so that your caramel does not stick
Add the caramel and the cream
Melt for 60 seconds, then stir and return to microwave and heat in intervals of 30 seconds after that depending on the strength of the microwave it could take as long as 120 seconds total
Note: It cools very quickly and you may have to to reheat after a couple of dips
Test each and every time you heat to make sure caramel is not too hot for little hands!
