I was looking through the archives and found this goody!
Over the weekend, Eben and I were dying to make caramel apples. We had picked up a few supplies from the market – organic apples, organic caramels and organic coconut. We also had some Unreal Candy on hand – and of course Eben wanted peanut-butter cup on his. They were divine! If you haven’t had a coconut-caramel apple yet, get on it! Read on for our recipe and make these yummies with your little mummies tonight!
1. Gather the Ingredients
- 3 organic apples
- 27 organic caramels
- 1 cup organic coconut
- 3 Unreal peanut-butter cups
2. Cut it Up
Take this time to chop your Unreal peanut-butter cups into small squares and get your coconut ready to go.
3. Stick It
Place a wooden ice pop stick or chopstick in your apple – make sure you don’t go all the way through.
4. Heat it Up
We were in a hurry so we heated our caramels with 1 tbsp. water in the microwave, and they were completely melted after 1 minute. However, I would recommend stopping at 30 seconds and stirring your caramels until melted.
5. Caramel it Up
Roll your apple through the caramel – it helps if you tilt the bowl from side to side until your apple is covered.
6. Sweeten It Up
As soon as your apple is covered in caramel, roll it in peanut-butter cup or coconut.
7. Eat and Enjoy!
We had to immediately sit down and nosh on our caramel apples – they were so good. I was especially fond of the coconut (my favorite!) – it was perfect.
