Mini Caramel Apples

11.17.11

I picked up some crab apples at Whole Foods for the cooking I mentioned I’ll be doing this weekend. But when the kids and I got them home and looked at them, we just couldn’t help ourselves.

We decided we had to dip a few in carameland make mini caramel apples.We decided we had to dip a few in caramel and make mini caramel apples.
Now I am trying to find an excuse to have a party for my daughter so I can show these off.
By the way, few grocers carry crab apples, so if you’re out to find some, call before you shop. And if your sole plans are to make mini–caramel apples, you’ll probably want to ask for Lady Apples instead (different than Pink Lady Apples). From my understanding, they are a little sweeter than crab apples, and just as mini.

Oh my gosh! Love this idea!
It would totally improve the caramel to apple ratio!

Jessica!! You are too funny. I love this, and agree, a higher caramel to apple ratio is not a bad thing!!

Yum! These look fantastic but I’m afraid the crab apples wouldn’t make it that far for me. I LOVE crab apples and had no idea it was possible to buy them!

I used to eat crabapples off a tree in my yard when I was little! They were very bitter, but I can’t imagine them not being great dipped in caramel and chocolate! Can’t wait to try these out.

Great apples, but my eye was drawn to that cute cake-plate! My mom has the same biscuit cutter, and now I’m scheming on how to borrow it!

Dumb question, what’s the white stuff? I’m dying to try these out!!

Hi Hazel,
So, I am sorry I am getting to your question MONTHS after you asked. It is a great question! I used the candy melts (not real chocolate) to cover the caramel. They are just simpler than white chocolate because you don’t need to temper them. Good luck!!
