Of all the seasons for food fun and memories, fall is definitely my favorite. I cannot get enough of the apple cider, squash soups, and pumpkin pie. And I love carmel apples. Like, for real. But since I prefer to eat my food (as opposed to wearing it on my face, or having it dripping down my forearms), I decided it might be time to give the venerable caramel apple a manageability makeover. I know – we treasure our fall foods, and messing with them can be controversial. But to any naysayers, I’ll submit that these yummy bites mean more creamy caramel and less mess – win win!
2 crisp apples, cut into 1/2″ slices
1 bag Werther’s Caramels
Prepare your apple slices and set aside. Line a large, flat platter with parchment paper.
Set up a double boiler, or use two pans that are sized appropriately. Fill the bottom pan with two inches of water, and turn heat to medium-high.
Add the caramels to the top pan, and keep a close eye. After about 7 minutes, they will begin to melt. Carefully stir, until the mixture is nice and smooth, about 3 – 4 minutes more.
Once caramel is pliant and smooth, turn heat to medium-low. Dip each apple slice into the warm caramel, and then use a spoon to help wrap the caramel around the apple.
Set the finished apples on the prepared platter, and serve. These caramel apple bites are best eaten right away.
