I loved these! So much easier to make than I would have guessed. I made sure to drop my apples in boiling water for a bit and dry them off really well, letting them get nice and cool before i dipped them in the caramel. I think I over cooked the caramel just a tad – I did not have a candy thermometer! But I used a knife and cut slices and it was every bit as delicious and not as messy! LOL I used Karo Light Corn Syrup, but I think i would like to try it with Karo Dark syrup.
Do you love caramel apples but hate trying to eat them?
Try it this way! Hollow out your apples, (you can balance the apple halves in a muffin pan) fill will melted caramel, let the caramel harden and cut into slices!
- granny smith apples
- Cut your apples in half. Remove stems.
- Hollow out each half by coring and shaving away some of the inner apple. (I use a muffin tin to help balance.)
- Fill with warmed caramel. (You can use homemade or you can use store-bought and microwave it in 15 second intervals until warmed.)
- Let the caramel cool and harden. Once completely cooled, cut apples into slice and serve.
