Sweets and fall afternoons go together like caramel on apples. What’s the best way to indulge your sweet tooth this season?
One time-honored favorite is the traditional caramel apple recipe. Simply slide craft sticks into apples and dip them in a mixture of melted caramel candies (about 14 ounces) and milk (2 tablespoons). Place the apples on a buttered baking sheet, set and enjoy.
For a fun twist on tradition, make your caramel sauce as usual. Then scoop out the center of the apples (brush with lemon juice to prevent browning). Fill the hole with melted caramel. Let it set, then slice.
If you’re looking for a truly decadent brunch treat, whip of a batch of french toast and then top it off with warmed apples, caramel sauce and even some walnuts.
