Soft Caramel Apples

Elise Ruby's birthday party favors were these caramel apples- too bad I forgot to actually give them away! 

Here's the thing, this caramel stays soft so I was keeping all of the apples in the fridge until everyone was leaving. So you see, because they weren't in plain sight, I plain forgot. It was a real "AAAAAAAGGGGGHHHHH" moment of frustration when I realized my mistake. I think the bigger issue I have now is how territorial my husband has become over these apples. I haven't seen him this obsessed and possessive over a dessert in a long time. It's not a good thing.

Don't get me wrong, I take it as a compliment that he likes these so much, but I really can't take any credit. I just followed the recipe from these lovely ladies. I'm not even posting the recipe because I followed it exactly, and there's no reason you shouldn't either. They've broken down the recipe step-by-step and it's not hard. 

These are truly the best caramel apples I've ever had. As I said before, the caramel stays soft, so it melts wonderfully in your mouth. I also toasted some chopped cashews and drizzled over bittersweet chocolate on some of them. These additions just made it even more over-the-top-perfection! It's a unique caramel recipe with dark brown sugar, sweetened condensed milk and maple syrup.

If you're like me and trying to eat/bake your way through your latest apple picking extravaganza, these are a fun way to finish them off- just don't forget to share ;)


  1. I was lucky. Due to my connections, I was able to get one of these caramel apples the next day from a relative. Absolutely delicious.

  2. Wow- These caramel apples look so delicious. I can understand why kent gobbled them up. I think I may have to try this. Yummy! By the way- Happy Birthday Ruby. Sorry we missed her birthday.

    1. Thanks Amy, you should make these for your family sometime and let me know how it comes out!
