Sweet rich caramel that makes the perfect addition to a tart organic green apple… Yum! I haven’t had a Carmel Apple in years! Growing up, they were such a treat! My mom would make special ones for us by simply melting caramel candies in a double boiler. Unfortunately, caramel today is typically filled with corn syrup and other highly processed ingredients. The good news is that it is definitely okay to have a sweet indulgence now and again. By making your own organic caramel apples, you know what the ingredients are, they are safe for you and your loved ones, they are natural.
Although I really wanted to have these ready for you to try before Halloween, these are still a perfect treat any time now, especially since apples are in season!
