My daughter and I are thinking of making caramel apples as holiday gifts for co-workers and unexpected holiday guests. We made them a couple of years ago, and had a lot of fun doing it. We bought an industrial size can of caramel, made specifically for caramel apples, and gathered peppermint candies, nuts, sprinkles, white and dark chocolates. Her thirteen year old twins helped, and we came up with an assortment of beautiful and very delicious treats. We wrapped them in cellophane and tied them off with ribbon and a gift card. These apples are meant for slicing and sharing, they are huge!
If you are of a mind to make your own caramel apple concoctions, check out this cute tutorial I found on Epicurious.com
On the other hand, if you prefer to just buy, check out these delectible selections I found by searching "caramel apples" on Etsy. Not all are edible, but all look delicious!
