You can substitute crushed chocolate sandwich cookies for black dutched cocoa.



Cobweb Caramel Apples


Ingredients

8 apples of your choice

20 oz. soft caramel (wrapped candy is perfect)

3 tbsp of heavy cream

8 bamboo wooden dowels or popsicle sticks

additional toppings of your choice (candy coating, chocolate, crushed peanuts, etc.)


Directions:


  1. Wash your apples and dry thoroughly before getting started.

  2. In a medium sauce pan, melt and combine unwrapped caramels and heavy cream over medium heat.

  3. Reduce to a low heat once mixture is smooth and ready for dipping.

  4. Skewer wooden dowels securely through the crown of the apples and dip them into the melted caramel. Coat the lower 3/4 of the apple.

  5. Angle the dipped apple over the saucepan and rotate until caramel no longer drips.

  6. Place on a flat surface lined with wax paper to cool. Now is the time to roll the apple in crushed nuts before the caramel cools completely.

  7. Once entirely cooled, dip apples in melted chocolate or candy coating or drizzle some around the sides.

  8. Place back on wax paper to cool, then enjoy!
