recipe: looking for: easiest way to make caramel apples

Posted by Cremin (My Page) on

Would a mix be easier than melting caramels? We are making them for my son's class Halloween party at school and we have a small electric coil burner that you plug in. I can bring in a saucepan and am wondering if any of you have done this (esp. w/kids) if those mixes are easier? Any thoughts? Thanks!! :)

RE: recipe: looking for: easiest way to make caramel apples

If you have your heart set on dipping the apples, you won't want to try this. But for fall festivals at my church, we've sectioned the apples, then put them in a dish with the caramel on the side. Use one of those metal apple thingys that removes the core & cuts the sections at the same time. We've melted the caramels in a crockpot - takes a while, so you have to plan ahead. My sister is able to buy caramel in big slabs (4 or 8 lbs., I forget) at a craft store (dare I name it? - Ben Franklin) where she lives. That would save unwrapping the caramels. I prefer the taste of real caramels to the caramel dip you find next to the apples at the grocery store.

I like the taste of real caramels & the only work is unwrapping them but if you could get the slab kind it would help.

Well I dont know if they have this in the stores still but as a kid in the 70's they sold a kit that came wih 8 or 10 disc of caramel (looked like a piece of bologna) the sticks were included you wrapped the apple with a disc stuck with a stick and I think baked.....Now thats EASY!!!!!!!!LOL
