Caramel apple

Caramel apple

Caramel apples or toffee apples are created by dipping or rolling apples-on-a-stick in hot caramel, sometimes then rolling them in nuts or other small savories or confections, and allowing them to cool.

Production

Alternately a sheet of caramel can be wrapped around the apple, then the apple is heated to melt the caramel evenly onto it. More elaborate apples use white chocolate over the caramel to hold a variety of candies, nuts or cookies. Tart, crisp apples such as Granny Smith are preferred to contrast with the soft, sweet caramel.

Consumption

Caramel apples are usually consumed as treats at autumn festivals such as Halloween, in the wake of the annual apple harvest.
