Holiday Chocolate Caramel Apples
Stephanie Van Den Berg
I love caramel apples. But never had one layered with all these delicious flavors and then topped with candy and sprinkles. They were delicious! These would make great gifts and would look lovely set out on a holiday table.
I could not find a block of caramel so I used some caramel candy instead. Worked great!
- very large apples, gala, envy, pacific rose. about 8 oz. each
- 2 1/2 lb
- block caramel, I use Peter's
- 2 lb
- chocolate cand-quik
- 1/2 lb
- white candi-quik
- 1 pkg
- holiday M&M's
- 1 pkg
- Heath toffee bits
- 1 bottle
- holiday sprinkles of choice-I used snowflakes and holly
- 7" caramel apple sticks
- goodie bags and ribbon
- muffin top papers
Prepare Candi-Quik by breaking into smaller pieces.
When caramel is melted dip each apple up to stem area. Twirl to remove excess caramel. Transfer to parchment paper. Let set so caramel can harden about 30-45 minutes.
While caramel is setting up, melt chocolate Candi-Quik in double boiler over medium-low heat. Be careful not to overheat or you will end up with "dull" chocolate.
Dip each apple into chocolate, twirl to remove excess chocolate. Set on clean sheets of parchment.
While chocolate is setting up, melt white Candi-Quik in double boiler.
