I’m not sure what I love most about the arrival of autumn.  Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty of stuff to love about this time of year.  These caramel apples are at the top of my list.  Classic comfort food this time of year like pumpkin, squash, savory soups, slow cooker recipes, casseroles, crumbles and more apple recipes are at the top of my list too.  Getting comfortable during sweater weather and wearing fashionable boots while sipping apple cider and hot cocoa is pretty awesome.  All the holidays and beautiful outdoor colors is something I look forward to each and every year!

In case you needed a reason to get outside and visit an apple orchard this year, there is this luscious recipe to give you an idea.

I cannot remember the last time I made caramel apples.  In fact, I’ve always shied away from chocolate and caramel concoctions in general.  However, not this year.  My Facebook feed has been full of Caramel Apple fun and I couldn’t resist.

This Caramel Apple Kit from Chocoley is truly amazing.  They’ve included everything you can think of and want in a caramel apple.  Lots of gourmet chocolate, check.  Gourmet caramel, check!  What they also include are wooden sticks, more chocolate to drizzle on the apples to your hearts content, cello bags to store the apples in and dipping sheets.  The kit is truly phenomenal and really brings back childhood memories of dipping caramel apples with mom.

The Recipe

Yields: 10-12

Gourmet Caramel Apples

Gourmet dipped and drizzled Chocolate and Caramel Apples with a variety of toppings such as chopped nuts, crushed Oreos and Graham Cracker crumbs.

2 hrPrep Time

2 hrTotal Time

Save Recipe


  • 10-12 Large Honey Crisp Apples
  • 1 Caramel Apple Kit
  • Evaporated Milk, few Tablespoons
  • 2 cups nuts, chopped
  • 15 Oreos, crushed
  • Graham Cracker Crumbs, Optional


Under warm water, wash apples with a little soap and remove stems then thoroughly dry. Chop nuts and crush oreos and prepare other toppings if using. Using the Caramel Apple Kit from Chocoley, poke the sticks into the apple stem spot. Working in batches, heat caramel according to directions. Add a teaspoon or two of evaporated milk, if needed. Spray heavy weight dipping sheets with oil and place in refrigerator. In a tall dish (I used a tall yogurt container) dip apples into caramel. Use a spatula to clean extra caramel off the bottom. Place on heavy weight dipping sheet and repeat until done. Allow apples to cool in refrigerator for about 30 minutes to 1 hour. Prepare chocolate according to directions. Dip caramel apples into chocolate and quickly toss desired toppings on chocolate apples and set aside. Repeat until done. Melt Chocoley drizzle bottles according to directions. Drizzle the top of each apple with chocolate. Fill center of apple stick with chocolate and cover with nuts.

    Wow. That looks sooooo good! I actually just at a Honey Crisp apple today for the first time……but it did not have all of that yumminess on it! Thanks so much for linking up to the DIY Inspired party tonight. 🙂 XOXO

    Those are stunning! Remind me of the caramel apples from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory my mom used to buy my brother and I for Halloween when we were kids.

    I love to make homemade treats for Halloween for my friends’ kids- these would be a perfect option!

    Visiting from SITs. 🙂

    When I first saw the apple I thought OMG those are gorgeous but must be hard to make. Then, after I read the recipe, I think I could possibly do it myself! Wow – thanks! I just might make these to take to a halloween party!

      Thanks, Vickie. I can’t remember the last time doing caramel apples but I’m pretty sure this was my first time as an adult on my own. It was a lot of fun and pretty easy. I usually have trouble melting chocolate but I’ve got it figured out with the microwave on 1/2 power now!

    What absolutely gorgeous caramel apples! I love how you’ve dipped them in various toppings… and they sound ah-mazing! Seriously. I could go for a few of these right now, haha.
