Gift Idea: Caramel Apple Sampler

This post brought to you by: Gygi


Good morning everyone! Today we’re sharing our third and final treat from our afternoon of holiday baking. It’s our fave so we hope you enjoy!

We’ve mentioned before how much we love caramel apples for gift-giving, and we’ve been dying to make a batch of delicious caramel apples all year long.

After hearing people rave about Peter’s Caramel,we have finally found the perfect occasion to try it out, and made a double batch for all our neighbors and friends for Christmas. We couldn’t decide on which candy topping would be best, so we decided to prepare a sampler instead.:)

We used these tips from Orson Gygi and are happy to report present-worthy results.

This is what you’ll need: Milk ChocolateWhite Chocolate, Peter’s Caramel, Candy for toppings, Apple Skewers, and Parchment Paper.

How To: First, we prepped our apples using these steps. We used small fuji and gala apples so we could fit two different apples in one box.

Next, we prepped the caramel like this.

After dipping and setting the caramel, it was time for the chocolate. We went with the less-stress approach and used Guittard milk chocolate a-peels, and melted them in the microwave, stopping and stirring every 20 seconds. We drizzled the chocolate onto the apples and then sprinkled our candy topping before the chocolate set.

Like our pretzel sticks, this was SO MUCH FUN and incredibly easy with Gygi’s quality products. We are so happy with the results and hope our recipients are too. :) We also really loved these brown cake boxes, they were perfect for this project and only 65 cents each (see HERE).

    […] We wanted to serve another fall favorite, caramel apples. Although these are super easy, they are a little time consuming, so we made sure to schedule prep time before the party. We were thrilled with how they turned out. See directions HERE. […]
