Caramel apples are one of my favorite Halloween treats, but they are not even close to being kid friendly which means I basically never get to eat them anymore. I just cannot stand the sticky caramel mess that seems to cover my children from head to toe even after just one bite of them. How does one even do that? I think my kids have a talent for messes.
I am so excited about this recipe for mini caramel apples! There is way less mess involved and because they are bite sized you can eat several and not feel as guilty as you do after you have eaten a full sized caramel apple.
Here is what you need to make these mini caramel apples:
4-inch lollipop sticks (or toothpicks)
Granny Smith apples or whatever you might have on hand (one apple makes about 8 mini
Butterscotch or peanut butter chips
Chopped nuts, nonpareils, sprinkles, shredded coconut (optional)
Small paper candy cups
