Halloween Caramel Apples

Halloween Caramel Apples and a Cookware Giveaway! | ButtercreamBlondie.com

I don’t think there’s anything like a caramel apple in the fall.  It’s one of those treats that as a kid, you’re amazed by and I don’t think that ever really changes.  I decided to step up my normal caramel apple game this year and deck them out for Halloween.  A slightly tart apple covered in sweet, chewy caramel is pretty perfect, but they’re even better when you dress them up in chocolate.  I mean, what isn’t better with chocolate?  And let’s not forget the sprinkles!

Not only are we talking about these fun, festive and easy caramel apples today, but there’s also a sweet giveaway.  I’m teaming up with my friends at Farberware to “Celebrate the Seasons” where we’ll be bringing you easy entertaining holiday inspiration!  One reader will win a Farberware Dishwasher Safe Nonstick 15-Piece Cookware Set in the color of your choice!

Okay, so let’s talk about these caramel apples.  There’s two really important tips you need to remember when making caramel apples.  The first one is I highly recommend using organic apples. Regular apples have a waxy coating on them so sometimes when you dunk them in the caramel, it will slide right off.  To prevent this from happening, you want to use organic apples.  I used the little granny smith ones.  The second thing is you need a candy thermometer. It’s super important to cook the caramel to the correct temperature and using a thermometer will make your life so much easier.

What I love most about making these is they’re great for kids and adults.  It’s one of those desserts where everyone wants to get involved in.  Everyone can pick out what kind of chocolate they want to use and what kind of candy or sprinkles to dip them in.  I dipped a few in peanuts too.  I love the tart apple paired with the sweet caramel and salted peanuts.

And how fun are these for a Halloween party?

    Caramel covered apples are a great ‘flash from the past’” that I/weI can make and enjoy while visiting grandsons this weekend. The Farberware would be a needed replacement for my cupboard of old and mismatched cookware!
