Tips For Perfecting Your Caramel Apples For The Fall Season

tips for perfecting your caramel apples for the fall seasonCaramel apples are the perfect treat to warm you up for autumn. If you’re making a batch for an upcoming party or are just looking for a sweet dessert to have around the house, here are a few tips that will take your delectable caramel apples to the next level:

Make your own caramel
For especially delicious caramel apples, try making your own caramel from scratch. You’ll need 1 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of water, a large heavy-bottom pot, a heat resistant spatula and a candy thermometer. Combine the water and sugar in the pot over low heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Cook until it begins to brown, about five to 15 minutes. When it starts to change color, cook until golden amber, about 340 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove from heat and let cool.

Scrub the apples
In order for the caramel to stick to the apples, the waxy coating must be removed. This can be done by scrubbing the skins with a scouring pad. Rinse when you’re done and make sure they’re completely dry.

Let your fruit chill
Your homemade caramel will stay on your apple better if it’s cold. Put the the apples in the fridge and let them chill for about 30 minutes before coating them.

Choose your toppings
While sticking to a plain caramel apple is always an option, try dipping it in favorites like nuts, sprinkles or M&Ms for enhanced flavor. You can also drizzle melted dark or white chocolate on top of the caramel for extra sweetness. Before you add any flavors to your apples, chill the caramel coated fruit for about 15 minutes.

Online pastry programs can help you make plenty of other homemade desserts perfect for fall.
