Inside Out Caramel Apples

I’ve decided that the weekends will be my designated time to experiment with new, fun recipes.  Yesterday Blake and I and a couple of friends went pumpkin picking so I was looking forward to carving them and making pumpkin soup, maybe pumpkin cookies, some roasted seeds!  But when Blake and I went to the grocery store to get the few things I needed, we got side tracked, causing me to change my recipe plans for today.

One of the things I can’t stand is buying things I know I can make, especially when they’re over priced.  So, in the grocery store we passed the caramel and candied apples in the packages and Blake wanted to buy them. So of course I said “no, no, I’ll make them today.”

I’ve seen inside out caramel apples before and wanted to give it a shot.

They came out quite tasty, but I already know the changes I’ll make for next time…

  • Granny Smith apples, not Gala.  The Gala and the caramel combination is a little to sweet for my liking
  • More time spent on scooping the insides out.  Creating a deeper bowl-like space
  • Allowing the caramel to cool for a longer time once inside the apple

Even though they didn’t come out perfect to my standards, they tasted great and are approved by both boyfriend and boyfriend’s friend. 🙂

Neater and smaller approach to caramel apples
Ingredients
  • Gala apples
  • Werther's Original baking caramels
  • heavy cream
Instructions
  1. Cut apple in half, the long way
  2. Scoop out the inside of the apple creating a bowl-like shape
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, place 10 caramels and 2 tsp. heavy cream
  4. Microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently
  5. Once caramels are melted into a smooth liquid, pour into apple bowls
  6. Let cool for 30-45 minutes, or until caramel seems solidified
Notes
This was a test trial for me, so I only made a total of 3-4 apples. Depending on how many apples you make, will determine how many caramels you'll need.
Werther's caramels have a 9oz bag caramel to 2 tbs milk/heavy cream ratio.
