Nutter Butter Caramel Apples

These nutter butter caramel apples look (and taste) so good, I’m just going to start with a photo.

Yum.

These apples weren’t very difficult to make either. I’d say from start to finish, it took less than 30 minutes.

Here’s what you need:

Popsicle stick/cakepop stick/heavy duty straw

6 apples (we used golden delicious, which we picked ourselves!)

14 oz. caramel (to melt)

2 tablespoons water or milk

3/4 package Nutter Butters

Sprinkles (if you have them)

Start by washing and drying the apples. Melt down the caramel by putting all the candies and the 2 ounces of either milk or water in a pan. Heat slowly, stirring almost constantly so the caramel doesn’t scorch.

Jam the stick you’re planning to use into each apple. Make sure it’s in tight so you don’t lost the apple in the caramel!

Either pulverize the nutter butters in a food processor, or, for a bigger cookie pieces, chop them up with a knife. We opted for the latter. Spread the nutter butters out on a cutting board, and mix in some sprinkles, if you’re planning to include them.

When the caramel is ready, grab an apple and dip it into the caramel. Make sure to swirl it around a bit to get all side covered. Continue swirling the apple as you take it out of the caramel, and let some of the excess drip off.

Once all the caramel stays put, quickly roll the apple into the nutter butter and sprinkles.

You will want to be sure to place the apple onto wax paper to fully set. Don’t use any other surface, or I’m pretty sure your apple will get stuck. Continue the process until you finish all 6 apples.

Dan and I brought these as a dessert for a dinner party we were going to and they were a hit. I do want to note that we compared one of our caramel apples to an Affy Tapple the hosts had, and the apples we made were HUGE. So, maybe split one of the caramel apples with a friend? Just kidding. Eat the whole thing and enjoy it!

    • Those straws actually are pretty thin. For reinforcement, we used cake pop sticks first (about 3 per apple), then put the orange and white striped straws over them so they would be nice and strong – for dipping and for eating! The cake pop sticks were from Michael’s, and the straws were from Target last season, on clearance after Halloween. 🙂
