Salted Caramel Apples

Salted Caramel Apples are messy to make but they sure do taste yummy at the end! In my family I have some who like caramel apples plain, some who like chopped nuts with chocolate chips and then one son who likes his with sprinkles.

Salted Caramel Apples are messy to make but they sure do taste yummy at the end! In my family, I have some who like caramel apples plain, some who like chopped nuts with chocolate chips and then one son who likes his with sprinkles 🙂 So when I make Salted Caramel Apples I like to make a variety for everyone. You can use any toppings that you want too.

To prepare pour sugar in a heavy-bottomed pan in an even layer. Turn the burner to medium and heat the sugar for 4-5 minutes; Do not touch or stir the sugar. Watch it carefully-it will liquefy suddenly an turn golden-brown. When the sugar is completely liquefied, remove it from the heat. Let cool for 30 seconds, then quickly stir in the butter, cream and salt. Transfer the sauce to a large bowl and refrigerate until cool.

Butter a baking sheet for the caramel apples to sit on. Insert a craft stick into the top of each apple. If using toppings put them into shallow bowls. Roll each apple through the cooled caramel, then through desired toppings. Place on the buttered sheet. Refrigerate to let caramel set.  I like using sprinkles on the caramel apples because it is a way to hide imperfections when making them!

My hubby adores his caramel apples with chopped nuts and mini chocolate chips. This is also a favorite at the bake sale at my boy’s school! I will make them then wrap in parchment paper and saran wrap then tie with a color streamer. They are always a big hit!

  2. How would you store these if made the day before a bake sale? Do they hold up fine if left out of the fridge for hours at the bake sale? Thank you!
