5 Craveable Caramel Apples
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.
Granola and Rosemary Cider Caramel Apples
Chopped fresh rosemary is added to sweet, golden caramel in this tasty take on the classic apple dessert.
Pistachio-Orange Caramel Apples
A double dose of orange from fresh juice and grated rind adds a wonderfully tart element to this salty-sweet treat.
White Chocolate-Pumpkin Pie Caramel Apples
This pumpkin-spiced apple has three decadent layers to make for a crumbly, dangerously-good dessert.
Bacon-Pretzel-Peanut Butter Caramel Apples
With creamy peanut butter spooned straight into the caramel, it's no wonder this apple is our staff's favorite of the five.
