Crockpot Caramel Apples Recipe
I know it is still August but I am in the mood for Fall! I have seen a few leaves changing in our area which makes me so happy.
I never thought I would be so ready for Fall and cooler weather. It has been such a crazy fire season this year in our area I am ready for the rains to come and put the fires out.
Our house smells like smoke right now from all of the fires. It has been crazy flying into Spokane and seeing all of the smoke in the area.
To help get ready for fall and all things pumpkin and apple we decided to make these delicious Crock Pot Caramel Apple Recipe!
So easy to make and oh so delicious!
This recipe is a bit labor-intensive because you need to stir the caramel every 15 minutes but that is really the only hard part of the recipe.
Oh, and you need to unwrap all of the caramels but other than that easy peasy! 🙂
We made a game of who could unwrap the caramels the fastest. The game also helped hold us back from snacking on a large number of caramels while unwrapping them.
- Caramel candies
- Apple juice
- Pumpkin pie spice (optional)
Optional - For an added crunch dip caramel apple in toffee bits and allow to cool.
Crockpot - We suggest using a crockpot that has a digital timer that automatically switches the slow cooker to warm after a set amount of time.
Parchment Paper - I love that I can use parchment paper to help make it easier to clean up after making these caramel apples.
Baking Sheets - We are huge fans of these baking sheets with sides. They make it really easy to allow to caramel apples to cool and move them around the kitchen.
We used paper straws to help hold the caramel apples. You can also use Bamboo Skewers or Lollipop Sticks
