Caramel Apples


J and I have a running disagreement over apples. I prefer mine tart {a la Granny Smith} he prefers his Red and Delicious. Yesterday, I saw a bag of Honeycrisp apples and knew that they could be the answer to all of our {apple related} problems. 


Satisfyingly crunchy, slightly sweet, and with just a hint of tartness-- they are the quintessential autumn apple. In celebration over our discovery, we made caramel apples-- the quintessential autumn treat.

In the past, I've had difficulties with caramel apples. The caramel tends to slowly slide off the apple until it's left standing in a sticky, scrumptious puddle. This time, I made sure to wash and dry the apples thoroughly and I didn't add any water to the Kraft caramels {still my favorite!} as I melted them on the stovetop.


The result? Shiny, sweet awesomeness. If you happen to come over {and promise to say carmel instead of caramel} I may even share. :)

What is on the bottom of that first apple? It looks divine. I'm a huge honeycrisp fan. But for a caramel apple, it's got to be Granny for me.

Are you suggesting that you and J also have NON apple-related problems!?! :)

Congratulations on finding the perfect apple. These are lovely. And, since you promised to pronounce caramel with only two syllables, I'll be right over.

On the bottom of the first apple: crushed Heath Bar. :) It's awesome, but my favorite is still semi-sweet chocolate with peanuts.
