Baby Chocolate Caramel Apples

caramel apples

Little Gala apples from the Arlington Farmers’ Market and an experiment in making chocolate caramel resulted in two dozen delicious, mini caramel apples.  They are all gone now leaving behind sticky fingers, smiling faces, and making one little boy’s loose tooth ready for the tooth fairy. 

For the last few years I have made caramel apples for Sukkot and I either made the reliable sweetened condensed milk coating or used prepared caramel.  Since I love making caramel sauce from scratch I thought I would try making a richer, tastier wrapper for caramel apples.  Lots of butter and brown sugar, a little honey, lemon juice, and heavy cream , and some semi-sweet chocolate made a great coating that was glossy and clung to the apples but soft enough to bite through and melt quickly in your mouth.

Happy Fall!  Happy Harvest time!  Happy Sukkot!

  2. I love caramel and making it is a lot of fun too. I had a ball making these homemade caramel apples by Martha Stewart. Perfect for Halloween!
