Making Caramel Apples

I became addicted to caramel apples while visiting my parents’ fall festival, Vala’s Pumpkin Patch, last weekend. In three days, I ate more caramel apples than I care to admit: for breakfast, for late-night snacks and just for fun! Nothing satisfies cravings for sweets better than crisp, juicy apples dipped in luscious, buttery caramel. It’s the perfect Halloween treat.

Topping combos are endless when you're making creative caramel apples.

At the “toppings bar” the caramel apple consumer becomes the creative creator. A plain caramel apple is like a blank canvas, ready for an endless possibility of topping combos, from toasted pecans and crumbled candy bars to mini marshmallows and melted chocolate.
