We can all agree that giant apples drenched in rich caramel, draped in rich, dark chocolate, and drizzled with decadent toppings that cling to the sides are simply irresistible. You know the ones that I'm talking about. Those scrumptious looking apples draped with nearly a half pound of sweet sugary goodness.
Surely, I'm not the only one who finds these drool worthy apples, irresistible.
As scrumptious as these apples are - they're definitely NOT first date worthy food. Digging into a giant caramel apple can be pretty messy. It is not easy to be neat or even remotely graceful when indulging in a giant chocolate caramel apple. Trying to get a bite big enough to include some of the apple along with the outer coating can be difficult. The struggle is real people. LOL
Not to worry though, I've figured out a way to enjoy caramel apples without getting a face full of chocolate and caramel. Caramel Apple Slices. These apples slices are everything that I love about chocolate and caramel apples in a neater, easier to eat slice.
Caramel Apple Slices
Toppings (M&M's, Chocolate Chips, Toffee Bits, Nuts, etc.)
Slice apples into thick slices. Pat dry with paper towels.
Insert sticks (or skewers) into apple slices.
Melt chocolate and dip apple slices in chocolate. Place on waxed paper to set. Place in refrigerator until firm.
Melt caramel and drizzle over chocolate.
Sprinkle your favorite topping over white chocolate. These were some of my favorites:
Heath Bar Bits
Once the chocolate is set, gently peel the apples from the wax paper and place on serving platter.
I just welcomed the caramel apple back to first date status. Now you can enjoy these decadent treats without the messiness of a trying to bite into a whole apple. You're welcome.
It's too bad I didn't figure this out while my kids were in braces and trying to eat caramel apples with a knife and fork. hehehe
