Apple Pie Caramel Apple
This Apple Pie Caramel Apple is just like the expensive ones at Disney World. An apple dipped in caramel, white chocolate, graham cracker crumbs spiced with cinnamon sugar. Make your own and save yourself some cash!
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 Disney World…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.
They’re way easier than you think. A lot of people are intimidated by learning how to make their own caramel apples.
It’s really simple. I’ve included some tips in the recipe to make sure you are successful.
I actually taught the women’s group at my church how to make these and we had all kinds of toppings like Butterfinger and M&Ms. But hands down, this one was the favorite.
You can definitely make your own caramel here or use the ones that come in a bag.

Apple Pie Caramel Apple
- 1 13-ounce bag Kraft caramels
- 4 large Granny Smith apples
- 1 pound white chocolate candy melts or almond bark
- 1- 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, (about 15 crackers)
- Cinnamon Sugar:
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Wash, scrub, and dry apples. You can use really hot water or some baking soda to get the wax coating off. This is important or your caramel won't stick because of the coating stores put on apples. Chill apples in the fridge before dipping. Cold apples helps the caramel stick.
- For the Cinnamon Sugar: Mix the sugar and the cinnamon and place in a shallow bowl.
- Place the graham cracker crumbs in a shallow bowl and add a couple of teaspoons of prepared cinnamon sugar to the crumbs.
- In a medium saucepan, melt caramel according to package directions.
- Put popsicle sticks in the apples. Dip in melted caramel making sure to fully coat it.
- Place on parchment or wax paper that has been sprayed with cooking spray so it doesn't stick. 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.
- Melt white chocolate or almond bark in the microwave in 30 second intervals stirring in between. Dip the apple with the white chocolate shaking off excess and then dip the bottom in the graham cracker crumbs and sprinkle the remaining white area with cinnamon sugar.
- Let it set up and chill completely in the fridge. Cut into slices and serve. Store in the refrigerator. These can be stored for at least 3 days in the refrigerator. Wrap them in cellophane and give them to your friends!
Oooh, looks delicious! It’s not fall without caramel apples!
I’m not a huge white chocolate person, but I think I’ll try this with dark chocolate and raw sugar (or brown sugar could be good, as long as it didn’t start clumping and stuck properly… Be still my sweets loving heart!)
Out of curiosity, what’s the best variety of apple for this recipe? I’m a big fan of crisp, tart apples (the more mealy or too-sweet ones are always a huge disappointment), and I’d like to branch out from Granny Smith a little.
I have made these apples (without the white coating and cinnamon sugar) many times. The best apples I find to use as a sweet coated apple is Granny Smith. They are tart and off set the sweet perfectly in my opinion. I have been making the Mrs. Prindable’s style apples from the popular shopping channel for many years and giving them as gifts. I have never made these but they are on my list of things to try this weekend. I just had my hubby buy a huge bag of Granny Smith apples from Sams and I am ready to go. So excited!!! Thanks for your blog. I have tried several of your recipes and you have never disappointed. From us southern girls, HAPPY FALL Y’ALL 🙂
Thank you Donna! You’re so sweet!
I do try to use granny smith for these but if you don’t want a tart apple I love Honeycrisps or Pink Ladies. Galas are good too.

In Australia and New Zealand the word “lounge” can be used to refer to either a
the sofa or couch or the room it is in. As today, that there have been different items available in shops and drug stores, one can’t effortlessly confirm which item will be adequate to meet their individual needs and wants.
You’ll be able to have a choice of black, blue, and yellow,
orange, green and several other mixed colours.
Yum! Putting together two seriously delicious fall treats!
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!
No there isn’t but I think it would be good.
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!!!
Looks so easy and cheap! Chocolate Factory sells these and I love them. It’s like $10 for an apple!!
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
Love anything caramel and love apples. Will definitely make soon!!
What a fabulous idea!!
Good blog dude! I just added this article to my Twitter account. Keep it up!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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…
You could use almond bark which is made from vegetable fats not cocoa butter.
I’m allergic to chocolate – any ideas on how to make these without chocolate? Thanks so much.
It looks delicious!
Love it!! Thanks for sharing!
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!
Love it!!! It’s such a good idea!
Thanks for sharing!
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!
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 🙂
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.
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.
When you eat them does the white chocolate gets hard or is it a soft texture?
It get’s hard just like a chocolate shell would.
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?
hmm such a unique recipe love it….
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.
Holy freak I NEED to make this! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I plan on using these for my wedding favors for my fall wedding! Thank you for the recipe!
I’m really loving your site, you have some great ideas regarding recipes, cant wait for more.
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.
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!
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.
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!!
Ooh, they sort of look like apple pie too, with the cinnamon sugar giving the white chocolate a “crust” resemblance. Sounds yummy!
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!) 🙂
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!
I love these!!! the rocky mountain chocolate factory makes them too. thanks for sharing, what a cute gift!
