Praline Caramel Apples
Yesterday we were officially three weeks out from Christmas!
Can you believe it? Where has the time gone?
Well, I hope that you have your holiday menu’s ready or are close to it because Christmas will be here before you know it.
In the spirit of tradition, we released a Sweet Potato Pie recipe last week!
I hope that you all loved the recipe, but some of us get tired of just having traditional recipes during the holidays.
Also, some of us have holiday parties with friends and co-workers besides just family members, right?
Well, these apples are perfect for that! These praline caramel apples were made with canned praline pecans.
And the caramel sauce? Store-bought as well. It’s actually an old fashioned caramel dip.
If you don’t tell your friends and family they will never know because we are only using quality ingredients for this recipe.
The apple sticks used in the apples can easily be found at your local grocery store this time of year as well.
These apples were so much fun to make and even more fun to eat! Let me tell you how easy they were to make..
First, you want to make sure that you dip the apples in hot water. Apples have a thin layer of wax which makes it hard for the caramel to stick to the apples.
Dipping the apples in the hot water removes the excess wax.
Once you have finished this step, make sure to pat the apples completely dry.
Next, we are going to place the caramel apple dip into a small or medium-sized bowl.
We don’t want the bowl to be too large so that we can easily cover the apple with the caramel sauce.
I suggest heating the sauce for about 15 seconds prior to dipping the apples in the sauce just to slightly loosen the dip.
Okay so once we’ve dipped the apples and completely covered them with caramel sauce, we are going to place them on the parchment paper until we process the pecans.
This is not the type of caramel sauce that will get too hard so you don’t have to worry about that while you’re prepping your pecans.
Place the pecans in a food processor until small pieces form. I pulse the nuts a few seconds at a time to ensure that they don’t grind up too small.
If you don’t have a food processor, you can place the nuts in a ziplock bag and crush them using a rolling pin or something similar.
Once your pecans are crushed into small pieces, sprinkle them on the apples until they are completely covered.
This process may become a little messy and you may have to maneuver your apples around, but this is the best method to decorate the apples with the pecans.
Place the apples in the refrigerator to chill until you are ready to eat them.
I hope you all really enjoy this recipe! Homemade praline caramel apples are so much better than store-bought!
Even though we used store-bought caramel and pecans, the apples still have a fresher taste than if you bought the apples completely pre-made.
