CHOCOLATE CARAMEL APPLES

Add a fun twist to your caramel apples this year by using melted Milk Duds instead of traditional caramels!

Chocolate Caramel Apples - Butter With a Side of Bread

I don’t know why I never even thought about melting Milk Duds to make caramel apples, but it is so easy and the taste is amazing! We make caramel apples every year around Halloween time and it was fun to change it up a little bit this year! The chocolate/caramel combination is incredible and pairs so nicely with fresh, crisp apples – this is the perfect fall treat!

CHOCOLATE CARAMEL APPLES

  • 5 oz. box Milk Duds
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • 2-3 medium apples
  • wooden craft sticks

Wash and dry apples, remove stems. Insert stick into stem end of apple and set aside. In a glass bowl, combine Milk Duds, milk, butter and vanilla. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between each interval until the mixture is completely melted and smooth. Make sure the mixture is extremely hot – the hotter it is, the thinner the mixture will be and the easier it is to coat the apples. Dip apples in the caramel mixture using a spoon to help coat the apples evenly. Place coated apples on wax paper and let stand until the candy coating firms up. Enjoy!
