Chocolate Covered Caramel Apples are just as fun to make as they are to eat!
Apples are delicious.
Chocolate is delicious.
Caramel is delicious.
When you combine them all, Apples + Chocolate + Caramel, it's a serious flavor, texture and mouth watering EXPLOSION in your mouth! These chocolate covered caramel apples are delicious slices of tart and juicy granny smith apples covered in smooth and creamy, melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate, drizzled with caramel and topped with m&ms and nuts (if desired).
I prefer to make caramel apple slices vs an entire caramel apple for a handful of reasons:
- I always slice my whole caramel apples and eat the slices. I leave the core and stick in the center and toss it when I'm done.
- My kids beg me to buy them caramel apples at the store. And when I do, they take two bites and don't like it anymore. Or they lick off all the caramel and leave me with the apple.
- I like small things. I like bite size. I like things I can easily pop into my mouth and enjoy but not over enjoy.
- I found these neat caramel bits in the baking aisle -- no more unwrapping caramels! Plus, I think they melt faster!
How to Make Chocolate Covered Caramel Apples
You'll want to invest in one of these amazing apple slicers. I use them for every apple slicing, including my apple pies. I've had this apple slicer for 10+ years and I use it all the time. I also toss it into the top rack of the dish washer -- an added bonus.
You can certainly get creative with the toppings on the apples. Swap pecans for walnuts or omit completely. Add mini marshmallow bits if desired.
