Apple Pie Caramel Apple

I know this recipe isn’t complicated or even a recipe really but it’s that time of year and this caramel apple deserves to be made. These remind me of Disneyworld…you can find the most delicious apple pie caramel apples on Main Street in the Magical Kingdom for a whopping $8. They taste like an apple pie on a stick. They were so good they even trumped my beloved churros at Disney.

 

 

Apple Pie Caramel Apple

Ingredients

  • 1 bag Kraft caramels
  • 4-5 large, tart apples (You can use red apples too but I like the contrast of the tart apple with the caramel)
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips or white chocolate candy melts
  • cinnamon sugar

Instructions

  1. Wash, scrub, and dry apples. This is important or your caramel won't stick because of the coating stores put on apples.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt caramel according to package directions.
  3. Put popsicle stick in the apple. Dip in melted caramel making sure to fully coat it.
  4. Place on parchment or wax paper that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  5. Cool in the fridge until caramel is set up. If you want a thick caramel layer, add another layer of caramel here and let it set up again.
  6. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second intervals. You can add a little shortening if the mixture is too thick.
  7. Coat the apple with the chocolate.
  8. Let it set up a little bit before sprinkling it with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  9. Cool completely in the fridge.
  10. Cut into slices and serve.
  11. These can be made up to one day ahead of time. Store in the refrigerator....Or wrap them in cellophane and give them to your friends.

  1. I love these!!! the rocky mountain chocolate factory makes them too. thanks for sharing, what a cute gift!

  2. Love it! I am making these tomorrow for my girls I visit teach so I will try some like this too. Looks sooo yummy. Hope you are doing well!

  3. Kristy, I have been stalking your food blog for awhile now. I am friends with Megan Mortensen up here in Washington! I found your blog once, while looking on her blog (back when she used to blog) :) and love all of your recipes! I just wanted to tell you! :) I CAN NOT WAIT to try these caramel apples. We are going to make them this conference weekend! :) Thanks for all of the great recipes! And your new little guy is adorable! As are all of your boys! ( I peeked over to your family blog!) :)

  4. Ooh, they sort of look like apple pie too, with the cinnamon sugar giving the white chocolate a “crust” resemblance. Sounds yummy!

  5. How do you get your caramel to stay on the apples? Mine always runs off and I want LOTS of caramel on them! These look delicious! Thanks!!

  6. @Melanie,
    Make sure to really wash and scrub the apples because the protective coating that store put on them is thick and will make your caramel fall off. You can even let the first layer of caramel set in the fridge then add another layer.

  7. Christy – just wanted to give you a big thanks for your tasty blog! I think we share the same palate :). I have so many new recipes to try now thanks to you. It was fun to recognize some of these – Steph Jensen is my sis in law! Thanks again!

  8. The way I get the coating off my apples is this. Boil water in a pot then drop an apple in for 10 seconds then lift out and rub with a towel. Repeat with remaining apples. The coating is waxy so the boiling water melts it quickly.

  9. I’m really loving your site, you have some great ideas regarding recipes, cant wait for more.

  10. I plan on using these for my wedding favors for my fall wedding! Thank you for the recipe!

  11. Holy freak I NEED to make this! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  12. Omg…. I am so making these! I love Fall! I’m your newest follower. I had a new follower that pinned this. I love it! I look forward to more of your posts.

  13. hmm such a unique recipe love it….

  14. Has anyone made these ahead for gifts? If so, how far ahead did you make them? Did they last awhile without the caramel separating from the apple?
    Thanks!

  15. @Erin,
    I made these a day ahead of time as gifts. Day 2 they were still good. Day 3 the caramel started to separate. Make sure you store them in the refrigerator so that the caramel does not get soft.

  16. These look so good! I will have to make them. Between being allergic to tree nuts peanuts and wheat there are many deserts I cannot have but these I could eat.

  17. There is a little store here that sells apple pie caramel apples too and they also put nutmeg in the cinnamon and sugar and that makes it taste especially like apple pie!!! Omg I am so glad you have this up :)

  18. Awesome. Thanks!

  19. Funny thing. I was looking up candy apples and your site popped up and the apple you described sounded so good so I looked at it. Now here is why its funny. I am going to Magic Kingdom tomorrow and that is where you said to find them:) so thank you for that!

  20. Love it!!! It’s such a good idea!
    Thanks for sharing!

  21. I’m sure this was intended, but these apples are sold at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. I love them! I was just thinking last night about how to make them. I will definitely try this recipe!

  22. Love it!! Thanks for sharing!

  23. It looks delicious!

  24. I’m allergic to chocolate – any ideas on how to make these without chocolate? Thanks so much.

  25. @Anonymous,
    You could use almond bark which is made from vegetable fats not cocoa butter.

  26. These turned out awesome and were a huge hit in my home. Thank you! Now I just need to take them to Disney with us…

  27. Use Peters caramel block and you won’t have trouble with the caramel sliding off the apple. I have also made apple pie caramel apples with a crumb pie topping. Make the crumb topping for your favorite pie and bake on a cookie sheet, use in place of the cinnamon and sugar.

  28. These were delicious and turned out absolutely picture prefect. Thank you for the great idea. I also dipped the apples in boiling water and I had no problem with the caramel coming off. I also rolled some of the apples in toffee bits instead of cinnamon and sugar and they were delicious!

  29. I am in my 8th month now and have been craving this since I saw it on Pinterest! I finally made them today…so worth it!! Thanks!

  30. Looks delicious but you should know that stores don’t put a coating on their apples….

    • Actually they do. I bought a bag of apples from Walmart yesterday and on the label it says that a wax is used to preserve them longer.

  31. Good blog dude! I just added this article to my Twitter account. Keep it up!

  32. What a fabulous idea!!

  33. Love anything caramel and love apples. Will definitely make soon!!

  34. I savour, cause I discovered just what I used to be taking a look for. You’ve ended my four day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great day. Bye

  35. Looks so easy and cheap! Chocolate Factory sells these and I love them. It’s like $10 for an apple!!

  36. These are my favorite Disneyland treat, too! You can get them at Pooh Corner. I think they’ve even added Winnie the Pooh ears to them now. So fun. My girls and I have been talking about making these, so thanks for the tips!!!

  37. Is there no brown sugar in these? I have a picture of mine online from years ago and at the time I posted “Apple Pie Carmel Apple…. Apple with caramel, brown sugar, cinnamon, regular sugar, white chocolate..”

    I am not sure if I was guessing at the time or if I had asked someone. Just wanted to ask you because I am craving these things and want to make them!

    Thanks!
