Make Your Own Miniature Caramel and Chocolate Apples
I tried and tried to find instructions for doing this online but didn't find one that I liked. I'm a pictures kinda gal. Give me pictures and I can do it. So, here's my version of what I think miniature Apples should look like. Oh, and I actually had someone ask me if these were baby applies, he he! I thought that was so cute!
Ingredients & Supplies
4 Large Apples (makes approx 2 dozen)
1" Melon Baller
4.5" Lollipop stick cut in half
3" x 4" self-sealing bags
Bag Toppers by ShabbyShoppe.com
Wax Paper on a Cookie Sheet
Using your melon ball scoop, scoop out 6 or so bits from your apple.
Dip each in lemon juice and pat dry
Insert half lollipop sticks in to the skin side of your apple.
Chocolate should be ready and melted according to the instructions.
To make things simple for me, I used the microwave chocolate.
Make sure to cover all of the flesh that is exposed and on up around the skin.
Hold over a small glass container after removing from chocolate and sprinkle with your sugar sprinkles of choice.
Place on wax paper to cool and harden apples.
Once chocolate is hard, place each one in a self-sealing bag and seal.
Attach a personalized bag topper and they are ready!
to purchase the complete set, you'll get tags, candy wrappers, bag toppers, cupcake wrappers, and so much more!
