Thee Most Delicious Caramel Apples

40

One of my favorite pasttimes is going to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and picking out the best looking cinnamon and sugar caramel apples. Oh these have been my favorite treats of all time...UNTIL I came upon a bigger, better, more delicious than anything you've ever tasted, way to make caramel apples. You don't have to take hours and hours to make chocolate or caramel. This recipe is easy and the caramel apples end up looking beautiful. You can buy all of these ingredients at Orso

18
1 5lb. block of Peter's Caramel
1 5 lb. bag of Guittard A'peels (white chocolate or milk chocolate)
Apples (I use JonaGold)

You will also need:
Sticks for the apples
candy thermometer
parchment paper
glass bowls- not plastic
Wash apples thoroughly. Take stems off, and push wooden stick into center of apple. You will want to set out a few strips of parchment paper to be ready once you have dipped the apples. Caramel: Start melting caramel in microwave for 1 minute. Stir, Melt for 1 minute on 50% power. Stir. Repeat this until caramel is between 160-180 degrees. Grab an apple and dip all the way into caramel (some people leave part of the top uncovered which is fine too). Hold dipped apple up for about 30 seconds to let excess caramel drip off. Put dipped apple on parchment paper and continue until all apples are dipped in caramel. Wait until caramel is solid on apples (about 30 minutes). In the meantime you can start melting your chocolate. (Remember that this recipe will make about 18 large apples so keep that in mind when you are deciding how much caramel and chocolate to melt) Chocolate: Now chocolate will burn more easily than caramel so take special care when melting. Melt your chocolate for 1 minute on full power. Stir chocolate and melt in microwave for 30 seconds on 50% power. Stir for about 1 minute because chocolate is warm and will continue to melt out of microwave- this will prevent burning the chocolate. Melt again for 30 seconds on 50% and repeat until all of chocolate is melted. Remember to stir in between microwaving. Once chocolate is melted dip the caramel dipped apples in the chocolate, let excess chocolate drip off, sprinkle with your favorite toppings, and set on parchment paper to dry. Once this layer is dry I like to drizzle excess chocolate on top of my t oppings to make them look fancy, bigger, and delicious. Whew! What a process, but it doesn't take more than about 2 hours to complete and then you can enjoy the best caramel apple you've ever tasted:)
