Pick Up Ingredients
Select your favorite apple.While a crisp apple is favorable, you want an apple that will allow you to pierce through its skin with the melon ball scoop. Also, select large apples so you can create a larger amount of mini apples.
- Consider buying a few lemons in the event you plan to make several apples. A few squirts of lemon on top of the waiting scooped apples will prevent oxidation, which may discolor the mini apples.
Pick up caramels or caramel sauce.This depends on how you like your caramel apples. You could also candy the apple as well so this step is simply a matter of choice.
Purchase lollipop or popsicle sticks.Each mini apple will be mounted on top of a stick so select your stick based on the size of your mini apples.
Tear a sheet of waxed paper or find a wire rack to use for drying coated apples.
Consider adding sprinkles or other candy adornments for your apple.This could also include candy corn or any other Halloween type candy.
- Purchase cello-wrap if you plan to present these apples as a gift or party favor. This includes colorful twist ties or ribbon to tie the cello-wrap in place.
Create Mini Caramel Apples
Wash/clean apple(s).You can either simply rinse the apple(s) or use special vegetable wash to clean the apple(s).
- Allow each apple to either air dry or dry with a paper towel. Never scoop into a wet apple as the fruit could slip out of your hand.
Dig into the side of the apple with your melon ball scoop.Approach the apple the same way as you would a melon by creating a small, round ball using the scoop.
Lay the small apple scoop on a plate or aside.Add a small squirt of lemon to the apples from time to time to keep them fresh, while they wait to be smothered in caramel or candy coating.
Heat caramel in the microwave (or follow package directions for either caramels or candy coating).Avoid overheating the candy, as it will burn. Consider starting off at 30 seconds in the microwave, remove microwave dish with candy, stir and return to the oven for another 30 seconds.
- Use caramel once it’s almost completely melted. Stir the candy until it blends together and is fully liquid.
Stab the apple with the lollipop or popsicle stick.Make sure the stick is in the mini apple but not through the fruit.
Dip the apple into the melted caramel or candy sauce.Coat well, by swirling the apple around the dish.
Remove the apple with care and either lay on a piece of waxed paper or in a wire rack.
QuestionHow long does the caramel need to dry before sprinkles can be added?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerSprinkle them on just when the caramel is starting to not drip off the apple, this ensures that the sprinkles don't fall off.Thanks!
QuestionHow long do they last?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThey will last a day if you leave them how they are; if you wrap them in cellophane, they will last a few months.Thanks!
QuestionDo I have to heat it up, or can I just dip the apple the way it is?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIt is okay to dip an apple at room temperature. The caramel should still be warm, so it will still be easy to dip the apple.Thanks!
QuestionCan I use melted sugar instead of caramel?Top AnswererNo, you cannot replace the caramel in this recipe.Thanks!
QuestionCan I use something other than caramel or candy in this recipe?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes. You could also use something like melted chocolate.Thanks!
QuestionDo I have to put the stick in?Shanneal GarbuttCommunity AnswerIt is usually made with the stick.Thanks!
QuestionCan I scoop the apples with any other equipment rather than a spoon?Top AnswererYou can, but it may be harder to use and scoop. You can try a melon baller.Thanks!
