Toffee Caramel Apple Slices

Today's post is a guest post from Deauna at Honesty's Protegee and I'm excited to be a part of this fun blog swap event! So without further ado, I am turning this post over to Deauna!

Hi everybody. I'm Deauna from Honesty's Protégée. Over on my blog I write about food, DIY projects and crafts. I'm glad to be a guest blogger on Confections + Coffee for the Homemade Halloween Treats Blog Swap.

I love the flavor of caramel apples, but I seriously hate the actual caramel apple creation. Biting the apple, juggling it on the stick when it gets small... no thanks.

These apple slices though? Addictive and easy to make and eat. You can use whatever toppings you love. I love toffee. I know... buttery candy overload.

Toffee Caramel Apple Slices

3 Heath candy bars, crushed
4 small Granny Smith apples
1 (11-ounce) bag soft caramel candies
1/4 cup whipping cream

Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Place crushed candy bars in shallow bowl. Using a slicer, slicer the apples about 1/4" thick. Place in a non-metallic bowl. Cover with cold water. For every cup of water, add one tablespoon of lemon juice. This will keep the apples from turning brown.

Heat caramels and whipping cream in medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth.

Dry the apple slices. Holding 1 apple slice, dip half in the melted caramel. Spoon crushed candy bars over the apple slices. Repeat with remaining slices and serve. Drizzle any leftover caramel over the slices. Apples can be refrigerated for several days; bring to room temperature before serving.

  1. I absolutely feel the same way about caramel apples. My daughter was looking for a way to do caramel apples with the culinary arts class she teaches here at a local High School. I will be sharing this recipe with her. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I LOVE caramel apples, but i hate eating them on a stick! This is a perfect solution! The toffee sounds Sooo yummy! :) Bring on the buttery overload!!

    1. I'm doing a caramel apple bar at the Halloween Dinner + A Movie I'm hosting Thursday, I'm so glad we swapped posts! Now I can have an easier way to make caramel apples!

  3. These look so easy but yet so festive! This is a great idea to make caramel apples a little more doable, both for making and eating. I am so glad you could participate in our Blog Swap Meet! I am heading over to check out your recipe as well!
