Prep Time 30 mins

Ingredients
  

  • Honey Crisp and Granny Smith apples [each apple makes 8-10]
  • Mini Caramel Apples
  • 20 caramels
  • 1 T light corn syrup

Instructions
 

  • Cut ball shapes out of the apples with a melon baller.
  • Place into a clean dry towel.
  • Chop nuts finely by placing into a ziplock and crushing with a rolling pin.
  • Put nuts into a foil lined pan.
  • Unwrap caramels and place in a microwave safe bowl. Add cream and corn syrup. Microwave for 30-60 seconds, checking and stirring until just melted, returning to microwave at 10 second intervals.
  • When caramel is ready, make sure apples are as dry as possible, insert skewer, dip into candy then roll in nuts, leaving the apples to set in the pan.

Notes

This can’t be made too far in advance because the apples retain so much moisture, so try to make them right before your party.
*substitute any nuts you want instead of dry roasted peanuts if desired
