Food Friday: Caramel Apples with Nuts
October 31, 2008
I thought in honor of Halloween, I would share a really easy recipe for making caramel apples. This could not be simpler and it promises to be a big hit with your trick-or-treaters or your friends.
1 (14 oz bag) of individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped*
2 tablespoons milk
crushed nuts, any variety will do
6 wooden craft sticks
Remove the stem from each washed apple and insert a craft stick into the top.
Place caramels and milk in a microwave safe bowl, microwave 2 minutes, stirring once. Allow to cool briefly.
Roll each apple in the caramel and then in the nuts. Allow to cool on a well buttered cookie sheet (wax paper will do as well). Enjoy!
* Since the caramel can get a little hot so if you have little ones that want to help, unwrapping the caramels is a great job.
