Easy Caramel Apple Recipes:

Caramel Apple Recipes are easy to make with the right supplies. Makes sure to have your lined baking sheet with parchment paper to easily coat the apples.

This is the perfect activity to do with friends and family. We love to get the kids involved and make it a fun family event. Check out our Best Caramel Apple Toppings.

Tips for Keeping Caramel on Apples:

Apples have wax on the outside that can cause the caramel to slide right off.

  • Dip in Water – Dip apples in water and swirl to melt and remove any wax. Wipe with towel to dry and remove any remaining wax. This step will help to make sure the caramel does not slide off the apples.
  • Place in Fridge – You can also put the apples in the fridge right after dipping in caramel. This will help the caramel to set.

The Best Apples to Use:

Tart apples combine perfectly with caramel for the perfect balance of sweet and tart. Granny Smith Apples and Honeycrisp are a few favorites.
