Here we are again and we’re one day closer to my favorite holiday as we continue on with 31 Days of Halloween!
Today, I’m sharing a quick and easy caramel apple fix. Do you have five minutes? Then you can do this!
What you’ll need:
- One Granny Smith or your favorite tart apple
- Caramel candies
- chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
- wooden toothpicks
- microwaveable plate*
- parchment paper
*Don’t want to microwave? Try this under the broiler, but keep any eye on it, the candy will melt fast!
Slice and core the apple any way you like, I like to cut my apples in 8ths for a nice apple bite! Place apple slices on parchment lined microwave-safe plate.
Using toothpicks, attach one caramel to the center of each apple
Microwave until the caramel just starts to melt. It takes my microwave about 1 minute and 20 seconds. Time may very with yours, so keep an eye on it.
Some of your caramel slip off? That’s okay, just scoop it up and dump it back on top!
As a finishing touch, sprinkle chopped pecans or walnuts (shown) on top while the candy is still warm. I recommend eating these warm, but you can refrigerate them, too. The candy may settle a bit, but it’ll peel right off the parchment paper!
