Hummingbird Caramel Apples
Start Here: Ready Your Apples
Push a wooden craft stick into the tops of 8 small apples. Bring 1 cup sugar, ¼ cup light-colored corn syrup, and ¼ cup water to a boil in a medium, heavy saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook, without stirring, 9 minutes or until lightly golden (about 260°). Follow one of the variations for a whimsical spin on this fall favorite.
First up: Inspired by the flavors of a hummingbird cake, this apple is dunked in a pineapple-coconut-pecan mixture for a sweet southern treat the whole family will love.
