Random Caramel Apple-Related Things

October 25th, 2012 by Cobwebs

Caramel ApplesTwitter account FoodPorn_ (which you should follow only if you don’t mind gaining 50 lbs) recently tweeted this photo of embellished caramel apples, and after quite a bit of googling I finally tracked down the original source…which, annoyingly, doesn’t provide details on the actual decoration. (It does, however, have a pretty good recipe for the caramel itself, in case you’d rather use from-scratch instead of store-bought caramels.) My guess is that they’re just dipped in candy melts and then in sprinkles.

The initial search did turn up some other interesting ideas, including these aggressively-festive things, and these cute jack-o-lantern and spiderweb designs. There are also some great ideas here (photos are at the bottom of the page–I love the little ghosts).

If you’re feeling brave you could also coat them with dried mealworms, and if you’re not-so-brave (or you want your friends to still like you), use the realistic-looking gummy earthworms instead.

Just for a bit of variety, these caramel apple cupcakes sound pretty tasty. (Also, did you know there’s a caramel apple perfume?)

    Have you seen the caramel apples that they slice before dipping, so that you don’t yank out all your teeth whilst trying to eat??

    I kinda giggled when I read “aggressively-festive” and then I clicked the link. . . o_O

    Carmel apples remind me of when I broke my braces eating them :( But some grocery stores sell carmel dip, which is pretty awesome (and you may be able to make something with slightly less frightening ingredients).

    Your phrase “aggressively-festive” reminded me of a house I passed today on my way to work but didn’t stop to get a shot of because I was already late. But it is aggressively festive. Or potentially just a crack house someone painted black.

    I wonder how those mealworm apples taste. I’d probably try a bite. Can’t imagine where I’d get dried mealworms from though. All I’ve ever found are live ones.
