I love the flavors of caramel apple. The creamy, buttery goodness of salted caramel served with the cool, crisp sweetness of a ripe apple. Delicious. The only problem? Making actual caramel apples may be the biggest pain ever. All that melting and dipping and hoping for the caramel to not slip off the rounded curves of your fleshy fruit. To combat my natural disdain for actual caramel apples, but still get some serious cravings kicked, these 8 beautiful takes on Caramel Apples–from bars to cider–offer up the perfect way to enjoy this classic combination!
