"Mrs. Jacqueline'sGourmet Caramel Apples"
that I dipped
last year and to get the recipe for my
easy homemade caramel. Once you have
tried this easy recipe, you will never spend
your time unwrapping those other caramels!
Last year I made them before Beaulah
came out of her box, so this year she thought she
would get in on the fun and make them a little
Just dip your apples completely covering
the entire apple. Place the covered apple on
a well buttered piece of foil so it won't stick
to the foil. Let it cool completely so that the
chocolate won't slide off the warm caramel.
We chose to cut a twig off the apple tree
for our "stem".
Place your apple on an upturned
glass that you have buttered the bottom of
(so your beautiful creation won't end
up stuck to the glass.)
Now pipe chocolate on using the smallest
tip and starting with the vertical lines.
We started by
dividing the apple into quarters and then
smaller until you have 12 - 16 vertical
It gets a little tricky as the apple curves
under toward the bottom. You may want to
start from the bottom and connect halfway up.
Pipe the horizontal lines, turning the glass as you
go. Don't worry if it doesn't seem perfect, ours
certainly were not. When you are finished you
won't notice the flaws.
Great way to add some
Halloween drama to your
seasonal caramel apples.
(We actually went out with two of the grandkids
and braved the
rain and a little snow today to pick these
off the tree. The snow actually came halfway
down the mountain! Too early for my blood.)
If you didn't read my post from
last year, tie CDs on your apple trees to keep
the birds from eating into every apple.
They still munch on the ones that fall on
It works like a charm!
(Beaulah thought she would look
charming in sepia to match the
color of the chocolate on the apples.)
