{Tasty Tuesday} Caramel Apples

 So I posted these last year about the week after I started my blog, so I’m sure most of you haven’t seen these yet. They are super easy and a cute treat to give out!
First things first melting the caramel. I love using the kraft caramel bits…so much easier then unwrapping several caramels. :) Add a Tb or 2 of water and melt on medium heat until you get a nice smooth consistency.
Dip the apples around the caramel, and use a spoon to smooth. Then put candy corn, sprinkles, heath bits, chocolate or whatever your heart desires around the base of the apple. Set on wax paper and allow to cool.
Put caramel apple in a cupcake holder and wrap up.
Tie with a cute ribbon, add a leaf and acorn and wahlah! Cute little gift!

    Hello…

    Mmm…I love caramel apples! It's been so long since I've had one though! Hehe! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us for the Sunday Favorites party this week! This is exactly how I make my caramel apples as well! But I love how you dipped them in the candy corn…so pretty! You wrapped them beautifully too!

    Warmest autumn wishes,
    Chari @Happy To Design

    How yummy. My friend and I were making a whole bunch of caramel apples for our church carnival last year and it was such a pain unwrapping all those pieces. We needed about 2 more bags and sent her daughter to the store who came back with those!! Makes so much more sense, I just didn't think to look for them. Would've save a bunch of time!
