Caramel apples makes a great treat whether you wrap it up in cellophane and give it as a gift during the holidays? Or serve it at your next party? Or cut it up into pieces to share with your closest friends? One thing is for sure; candy or caramel apples make you feel like a kid again. (Or it does for me). Here’s a fast and easy recipe to make caramel apples with roasted almonds and coconut.

 

Caramel Apple Coconut Ingredients:

-       1 bag of Caramel Chews.

-       2 tablespoons of water

-       5 medium apples (I prefer granny smith, for the sour yet sweet taste. Gala or Pink Lady apples are also good choices.

-       5 lollipop sticks or Kebab wood skewers

-       2 cups of Chopped Almonds

-       2 cups of Coconut shaving

 

Directions:

 

Melting Caramel  

-       Option one: Use saucepan. Set oven at medium. Melt the butter. Throw in the caramel pieces until they melt. Add two tablespoons of water.

-       Option three:  Put all the caramel in the microwavable bowl. Add 2 tablespoon of water. Microwave it for 3-4 minutes. It’s a good idea to check in half way and stir caramel, then let it continue to heat in the microwave.

 

Preparing the apples:

-       Wash the apples.

-       Remove the stem. Insert the sticks.

-       Make sure the apples are dry.

-       Place parchment paper or butter aluminum foil on a baking sheet.

Toppings:

-       If you have raw almonds, make sure to roast them. Put them in the oven for 5-10 mins at 350 degrees. Throw the roasted almonds in food processor to get chopped. Pour into bowl.

-       Place coconut shavings into a bowl.

 

Dip the Apples:

-       For the fun part. Take an apple, dip it into the bowl of melted caramel.

-       Then dip into chopped almonds, top it off with coconut.

-       Let the apple stand on the baking sheet for about 15-20mins. Best to put it in the refrigerator to help set the caramel. Voila. 

 

Other toppings include:

-       Mini M&Ms

-       Mini-marshmallows

-       Chocolate sprinkles

-       Chopped peanuts

 

Enjoy your caramel apple!
