Healthier Caramel Apples! Corn Syrup FREE

Caramel apples are one of the easiest, yet rewarding Holiday treats you can make your family. The you use healthier, organic, pure ingredients they make me slightly better (by no means am I saying they are good for you, they are a treat and treats should be enjoyed once in awhile). For the longest time, as long as I can remember, I have been afraid to make candy or use the candy thermometer for many reasons.. 1) I burn myself so easily! 2) I am accident prone! the list could go on forever!! But, I embraced this task because I love candy apples around the Holiday times and have not been able to enjoy them since we switched to organic 4 years ago. Well, I embraced the candy thermometer and task at hand to curve a craving and enjoy an amazing Holiday treat! Making caramel is super easy and truly only requires two ingredients. You do not NEED a butt load (<----Hahaha!) of sugar (actually none at all!). You MOST DEFINITELY do NOT need corn syrup (<---- barf!!) at all; that ingredient is one added ingredient that does not do anything for the caramel, honestly. Anyways.... Grab the kids, and your ingredients and pop into the kitchen! You can make these into mini's; all you will need is a melon baller and you are good to go. Just use the melon baller, scoop out pieces around the apple (leave skin on), dip in caramel, and then nuts or whatever toppings you wish and there you go!

You Will Need:

6 Small Organic Apples
1 Cup Organic Honey
1 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Real Salt
1 Cup Organic Heavy Cream
Organic Raw Chopped Nuts

Chill apples in the fridge for 1 hour, at least, after washing them well.

These are what I used

Poke sticks in apples

Mix all the ingredients except apples and nuts

Cook until your thermometer says candy; whisking


Cool caramel a little and dip apples

Then dip in nuts! YUM!
