Fall is officially here, and we have a fun treat for your next wedding or party! These individual, bite-sized pops are adorable, fun to make, and perfect for children!
Here's what you'll need:
- Apples of your choice (shown here are Granny Smith apples)
- One Container of store bought caramel dip
- Lollipop sticks ( you can cut in halves to make more apple pops)
- Melon Baller 1" (You can use different sizes)
- Mini cupcake liners
- Toppings of choice (nuts, not pictured)
First, prepare the apples by thoroughly wash them under water. Using the melon baller, scoop balls out of them.
Scoop as many "perfect" round balls as you can.
We were able to scoop 14 apple balls per apple
Push a lollipop stick into the middle of each ball.
Transfer the caramel into a ceramic or glass bowl. Heat the caramel in the microwave for 30 seconds, and mix well.
Once the caramel is softened and smooth, dip the apple pops one by one in a swirl motion.
Place the dipped apple pops in the mini cupcake liners to serve.
If prepared ahead, placing them in the refrigerator is highly recommended. That way, you'll get the cool, crunch, crisp, sour apple taste against the salty and sweet caramel...mmMmmm!
Adding toppings is another great way to dress up the apple pops. We recommend using nuts such as almonds, peanuts or perhaps cereals. Either way, have some fun, be creative, and let us know how it turned out.
