Peanut Butter Caramel Dipped Apples


We went apple picking. I say that like it’s a confessional because everytime I go apple picking, I feel like a spoiled glutton. Me and the kids, walking treelined aisles. Picking plump little apples from weighted boughs. Stealing taste after taste of their crisp-crunchy fruit.

If that sort of saintly activity makes me feel like a glutton, imagine dipping those pure, perfect fruits into a warm pot of peanut butter caramel. It’s enough to make a girl feel downright naughty.


But, oh. Sometimes naughty is so nice.



Peanut Butter Caramel Apples


2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup karo syrup
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt


In a medium pot, bring butter, sugar, karo syrup, and heavy cream together until smooth and melty. Stir in peanut butter, then keep stirring over medium-heat. Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 3-5 minutes (or, if you want to be technical, until the mixture reaches the soft ball stage). Remove from heat, allow the caramel to cool slightly, then dip skewered apples right on in it.

And, aren’t you just lurrrving those red & green caramel apple sticks? They are actually hard plastic straws, purchased in the hula-party section of my local Hobby Lobby. So fun!

    What a fantastic apple recipe. I've got loads of apples this year from my trees in my garden, way more than I know what to do with. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    These look absolutely delightful. I'm guessing the peanut butter makes the caramel easier to bite through, which would be an added bonus.

    The closest Hobby Lobby to me is 2 hours away. Maybe you can stock up and bring me a bunch of straws in New York? Hehehe.

    If your work depends on it, learn to check
    just three times. Try to use large bags; it will be easier to cut smaller shapes out of larger pieces than add
    two pieces together. The above information helps you to choose the
    better one that suits your requirements.

    Hurrah, that’s what I was looking for, what a stuff!
