  • 8 craft sticks
  • 8 crisp, not-too-sweet small apples, or 12 crab apples, chilled
  • 1 14-ounce bag natural caramel candies, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons half-and-half or milk
  • ½ cup peanuts (chopped)

Easiest Caramel Apples

Lori Eanes | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 8 people

No candy thermometer required for this easy recipe. Caramel apples will make any kid happy, but they could also be a surprise hit at your next party. Try using crabapples or Granny Smiths for a crunchy-tart contrast to the sweet caramel.

  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Insert the craft sticks into apples at the stem end.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine caramel candies and milk and over low heat. Stir caramels until they’ve melted. Holding apples by the stick, twirl them in the hot caramel then dip in the chopped peanuts. Set apples on baking sheet.
  3. Refrigerate until ready to serve. (In warm weather, the caramel will melt right off the apples.)
