It’s never too late for caramel apples! Once the cold weather started rolling around, I started getting this odd sweet cravings. Now keep in mind, I never crave sweets nor do I like sweets. On top of cakes, cookies, and macarons, I wanted caramel apples.
You can use any sort of apples you like. The tangyness of Granny Smith apples contrasts well with the sweet and creamy caramel. And the toppings are endless! Crunchy nuts, soft and gooey marshmallows, drizzled chocolate, fluffy cotton candy, chewy Twizzlers and color sprinkles.
The bouquet of caramel apples is my twist on the typical bouquet of flowers.
