Its that time of year! Caramel apple season! I have been making these for many years and the caramel recipe listed is my go to recipe whenever I need caramel. It is melt in your mouth delicious! The smell of boiling caramel is intoxicating! I couldn’t wait to eat these! They are wonderful for gifts. I usually wrap them individually in clear gift bags and tie them with festive ribbon. The topping options of the caramel apple are endless. My personal favorite is cookies and cream (white chocolate with oreos) but I also love the following combinations: white chocolate with butterfinger, white chocolate with macadamia nut, chocolate with almond, chocolate with peanut, chocolate with marshmallow, white chocolate with sprinkles (most kids favorite) and chocolate with shortbread (aka the twix caramel apple). There are too many choices! I even thought a rice krispie treat caramel apple would be amazing I just didn’t have time to make it. Make sure you have a chance to make these this Halloween season, because after all who’s Halloween favorite isn’t a tantalizing caramel apple!
