"Poison" Caramel Apples

Sep 20, 2016

A classic fall treat kids will love with a spooky twist to celebrate Halloween or any time of the year!

Fall is all about harvest and what is in abundance and every year apples make the top of most bakers lists of must have staples to create the perfect warming recipes. As a kid what I remember most about this wonderful fruit is caramel apples!

We took a classic recipe and twisted it with a little blue food coloring and created "poison" apples. We used a melon baller to make smaller pieces of apples for little hands to handle easier. This also helps ensure that less apple gets wasted when the littler kids are not able to finish an entire apple.

 

Ingredients:

3 or 4 Granny Smith Apples
Caramels ( We used Kraft)
Milk or Heavy Cream
Blue Food Coloring
Sprinkles
Mini M&M’s
Mini Chocolate Chips

Use a melon baller to make smaller "apples" and put a toothpick in each piece.

Have the kids help count out 100 caramels and place them in a microwave safe bowl. Add 6 Tablespoons of milk to the caramel and melt.

Stir the mixture every minute until you reach a smooth consistency.

Drop 6 or more drops of blue food coloring into the caramel until the desired green "poison" color is reached.

Allow the mixture to cool slightly before dipping.

Dip your "apples" in "poison" and then add in candy toppings if desired.

Set aside to harden for about 5 minutes.
