Fall Fest: Caramel Apples for Halloween

By: Cameron Curtis

Happy Halloween! You might be full of mini candy bars already. But since these are mainly made of crispy fruit, there's always room for candy-coated apples. The decadent apples (pictured above) from Zoe Francois are dipped in easy-to-make caramel that's rich, creamy, gooey and not over-the-top sweet. For a bit of contrast to the caramel, you can dip the bottoms in salted peanuts.

Combine sugar, butter, milk, corn syrup, maple syrup, vanilla, molasses and salt to make the homemade topping for these Caramel Apples. Then dip the coated apples in sprinkles, chocolate chips or coconut flakes.

Nadia G.'s Designer Toffee Apples are rubbed in homemade toffee and then dipped in toasted almonds that feature flecks of sea salt.

We know; it's not a caramel apple. But Bobby's Caramel Apple Cheesecake is inspired by the same amazing flavors as the classic fall treat. Here, a classic cheesecake is finished with a topping of thinly sliced apples, a drizzle of homemade apple-caramel sauce and a sprinkle of toasted walnuts.
