I have seen apple pie caramel apples around the internet world. Once again, most likely on pinterest. And I was intrigued. Like I said before, I love caramel apples. I like them with just caramel, but I like them even more with chocolate or something else added as well.
But I had never tried caramel apples in white chocolate before. So this year was the year I tried it. And it’s pretty simple to make, though my chocolate didn’t spread as pretty as some others I’ve seen online. The taste was delicious.
I don’t think these really tasted like apple pie though, so that’s why I have just named them cinnamon sugar caramel apples. Because that is what they have, well, white chocolate and then cinnamon sugar too. But adding the white chocolate and the cinnamon sugar is just a simple fix and a simple way to make your caramel apples even more delicious. And Maybe you’ll be able to do a better job and have yours look prettier than mine too. (Ps. I drizzled some leftover extra milk chocolate over the top too – mostly for looks but of course more chocolate can only help)
Cinnamon Sugar Caramel Apples
1 1/2 cups caramel bits
1 TBS milk
4 large apples
4 popsicle sticks or lollipop sticks
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 TBS coconut oil
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1. Wash your apples and scrub with your hands. Dry off well. Insert sticks into the middle of each apple.
2. Put caramel bits and milk in a medium sized bowl.
3. Microwave for about 2 minutes and then stir to mix caramel together.
4. Dip each apple into caramel, and spread additional caramel with a spoon if needed. Let excess caramel drip back into bowl.
5. Place apples on parchment paper and place in your fridge. Allow caramel to completely harden.
6. Melt white chocolate and coconut oil in a medium sized bowl in your microwave at 50% power. Microwave at 30 second increments until melted.
7. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
8. Dip apples into white chocolate, spread extra with a spoon if necessary. Let excess drip off, you don’t want too much chocolate.
9. Place apples on parchment paper and allow to rest for a few minutes.
10. Roll or sprinkle cinnamon sugar onto white chocolate (before its totally hardened) and then return to parchment paper and fridge until chocolate is set.
Enjoy these extra sweet caramel apples as a special treat!
