Today’s post is a guest post from Deauna at Honesty’s Protegee and I’m excited to be a part of this fun blog swap event! So without further ado, I am turning this post over to Deauna!
Hi everybody. I’m Deauna from Honesty’s Protégée. Over on my blog I write about food, DIY projects and crafts. I’m glad to be a guest blogger on Confections + Coffee for the Homemade Halloween Treats Blog Swap.
I love the flavor of caramel apples, but I seriously hate the actual caramel apple creation. Biting the apple, juggling it on the stick when it gets small… no thanks.
These apple slices though? Addictive and easy to make and eat. You can use whatever toppings you love. I love toffee. I know… buttery candy overload.
Toffee Caramel Apple Slices
3 Heath candy bars, crushed
4 small Granny Smith apples
1 (11-ounce) bag soft caramel candies
1/4 cup whipping cream
Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Place crushed candy bars in shallow bowl. Using a slicer, slicer the apples about 1/4″ thick. Place in a non-metallic bowl. Cover with cold water. For every cup of water, add one tablespoon of lemon juice. This will keep the apples from turning brown.
Heat caramels and whipping cream in medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth.
Dry the apple slices. Holding 1 apple slice, dip half in the melted caramel. Spoon crushed candy bars over the apple slices. Repeat with remaining slices and serve. Drizzle any leftover caramel over the slices. Apples can be refrigerated for several days; bring to room temperature before serving.
