A friend and I brought our boys together for an afternoon of apple dipping. It was rather easy. They even have kits out there (just be sure to read the box before you buy it. Gluten finds its way into some caramel kits). 🙂
Here’s the super-easy recipe for a fun activity on a rainy autumn afternoon! (Like today!)
Caramel Apple Surprise
8 Apples (We liked Honey Crisp but choose your favorite)
Caramel Dip (You can find a kit that includes the sticks too)
Layer a baking sheet with wax paper. Arrange marshmallows, candies, coconut, peanuts, and semi-sweet morsel on separate plates to allow for maximum dippage. 🙂
Remove stems from apples. Insert stick into the bottom center, pushing down until the stick is firmly in place. If apples were refrigerated, dry off apples with a paper towel before dipping into caramel. Set apples aside.
Follow the directions on the kit for microwaving the caramel dip. Warning! Very hot. Carefully dip apples into caramel sauce. Allow some sauce to run back into the container, then once apple has stopped dripping, gently press the apple into the dip of your choice. (Try not to roll the apple too much, hot caramel will slide off. Press, lift and turn for maximum coverage.)
Dip into next topping as desired.
Allow apples time to cool (you can even put them in the refrigerator for a few minutes).
Eat and enjoy!
