Crisp fall apples dipped in caramel and chocolate then rolled in nuts and Oreo crumbs and drizzled with more chocolate.  Get festive this season and hand-dip your own Chocolate and Caramel Apples.  This classic fall treat is hard to resist!

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.

Gourmet Chocolate Caramel Apples

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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. 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.

    10/18/2014 at 7:14 pm 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. :)

    10/20/2014 at 9:37 pm 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!

      10/20/2014 at 11:21 pm 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!

      10/25/2014 at 11:30 am Hi Carol, the caramel apple recipe is in the link below. Also you can use chocolate chips or chocolate bars to to then dunk the apples into after the caramel. For the drizzle, I used squeeze bottles (I think i saw some at walmart) to pour the chocolate into and squeeze on top. http://www.raininghotcoupons.com/cream-caramel-apples/
