Recipe:

Mini Caramel Apples


Ingredients
  • 4-inch lollipop sticks
  • Melon baller
  • Granny Smith apples (one apple makes about 8 mini apples)
  • Butterscotch or peanut butter chips
  • Chopped nuts, nonpareils, sprinkles, shredded coconut (optional)
  • Small paper candy cups
Instructions
  1. Mini Caramel Apples - Step 1 First, cut the lollipop sticks in half at an angle (the pointy end will go into the apple pieces easier). With the melon baller, scoop little balls out of the apple. Each ball should have a section of apple peel. Push half of a lollipop stick into the peel of each ball. Pat the apple pieces dry.
  2. Mini Caramel Apples - Step 2 Melt the chips according to the package directions. Dip and swirl the mini apples in the melted chips, then roll the apples in nuts, sprinkles, nonpareils, or coconut, if desired. Place the mini apples in paper candy cups to set.



These are so cute I am hoping to make a bunch for my family's fall party!
