Mini caramel apples

I have seen this little cuties all over the place lately and decided to whip some up. You can make these to your liking using any kind of candies to top the caramel with or just keep them plain caramel. I tried a few different toppings-chopped nuts, coconut, chocolate drizzle, crushed m and m’s, sprinkles and crushed oreos. Pick your favorite toppings and have fun! Great and bite sized for portion controlled goodness!!

ENJOY!

Ingredients:
4-5 large apples
Sticks
caramel melted
toppings for caramel

Directions:
Using a melon baller, make small balls from the apples. Discard extra apples. Dry them very well. Stick a small stick (I cut mine in half to make smaller) and poke into the top of each apple ball. Melt caramel and quickly dip in apple balls. If using toppings, dip into favorite toppings. Refridge for a few minutes to set caramel. If drizzling with chocolate, melt chocolate in a ziploc bag. Cut off a very small end of the baggie and drizzle chocolate over set caramel apple. Refridge to set chocolate. Place in mini cupcake liners and enjoy! The possibilities are endless to what you can do with these cuties!

    Do these brown after you use the mellon baller to get the ball? Or do they stay crisp?

      mine didnt brown esp because they were almost immediately covered in caramel. If you are worried about browning, brush on some lemon juice and then dry. that will help with preventing browning apples
