It's apple season, and Halloween is just around the corner. I would like to try to share with you at least weekly, some of my favorite Halloween treat recipes. Maybe if I post them on time, you will be able to have them become a part of your Halloween traditional celebration! (oh, in this picture, please pretend you didn't notice that I forgot the almonds..oops)
Rocky Road Caramel Apples
-4-5 Granny smith apples
-1 bag Kraft caramels
-3-4 cups milk chocolate chips
-halved or chopped almonds
-1/4 cup white chocolate chips and 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, for drizzle
Follow the directions in this recipe through the dipping of the apples in the caramel and placing them on a tray to cool completely. You can speed this by putting them in the freezer for about 15 minutes if you like.
Melt the milk chocolate chips in the microwave at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds, until completely melted. Thin with about 1-2 tsp. of vegetable oil to get a good consistency for dipping.
Holding one apple by the stick, use a large serving spoon to quickly spoon melted chocolate over all sides of it. Allow excess to drip off back into the bowl. Scrape the bottom really well because chocolate will pool down here.
Place apple on a tray. Allow chocolate to set slightly and then press miniature marshmallows and almonds into chocolate. (If you do this too soon the marshmallows will all slide down to the bottom.)
Repeat dipping/topping process for each apple.
Place tray full of dipped apples in the freezer for about 15 minutes until chocolate is completely set.
Melt white chips and semisweet chips (separately) in the microwave at 50% power until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Spoon into two freezer bags, cut off the tips, and use to drizzle vertically over each apple. Move tray back to the freezer to set completely before serving.
Store dipped apples in the fridge for 1-2 days.
