Fall just cannot exist without a good candy apple.  This quintessential fall snack brings out the kid in all of us and puts a smile on our faces.  Take your candy apple game to new heights with a couple new recipes and ideas.  You’ll be wanting to try at least one, or all of these ideas at your next party or Halloween movie night with the family. 

Candy apples

Apple Pie Caramel Apples

Let’s start out with the most fall sounding candy apple ever.  These granny smith apples with a crisp tart flavor are dipped in caramel, then dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.  To top these already amazing flavors, the apples are then rolled in crumbled pie crusts pieces.  These would be just as hard to resist as a warm slice of apple pie.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Caramel Apples

This recipe is not for someone looking to stick to a diet.  Wrapping a caramel dipped apple with cookie dough just sounds unearthly.  The soft cookie dough paired with chewy caramel and the snap of the apple is a winning combination for your taste buds.  Just be sure to heat treat your flour prior to using.  Consuming raw flour can be just as bad as raw eggs.  While this recipe for cookie dough has no eggs, flour is something people usually forget about.  There are lots of resources for how to heat treat flour, it’s very easy and makes it safe for cookie dough eating.
