Happy Halloween everyone! Yes, it's that time of the year already! Although this year is going to be very different with that awful virus plague. Still, for me, autumn means it's time to make my caramel apples for the family and give aways. It's also apple season around here with the many apple farms, so it's been a long tradition for me to visit the family owned farms in October and buy fresh picked apples for this decadent treat.
I used Fuji apples because they're big, juicy, and crispy. After they're dipped in caramel and chocolate, then rolled in crunchy toffee, these babies weigh over a pound! Now that's a monster treat. Perfect for Halloween. I know a lot of people use Granny Smith apples because they're on the tart side, but I like a sweeter apple, since after all, this does fall into the dessert-snack category. But really, you can use any apple of your choice. Just be sure they're a crispy variety and not a softer apple.
There isn't a recipe or tutorial for this blog entry. I just wanted to show you how you can dress up your caramel apples for Halloween parties, gifts, or favors. But if you do want my recipe, it's under Chocolatey Caramel Apples with Toffee Crunch.
All the leaves, ribbon, cellophane, spiders, and bat stick-ons were found at the Dollar Store. Cheap, cheap!!
The colorful straws covering the sticks can be found at Home Goods, TJMaxx, and even at grocery stores. The orange berries were clipped off a bunch of fall foliage, which can be found at any craft store.
