You may have noticed that we didn’t write a post last week. We fully intended to bring you a post that had the most perfect Halloween treats. However, we had epic fails. We thought we had two great recipes to share with you, but in the test kitchen things didn’t quite work out as expected. By the time we realized our ideas were not coming together, we had completely lost interest in finding a different idea for a post. But just like a phoenix rises from the ashes, we did stumble upon an easy, delicious caramel treat to share with you.
Grown Up Caramel Apple Dippers are an easy snack to munch on while waiting for trick-or-treaters to make an appearance or for enjoying on your back deck on a sunny fall day. This basic recipe can be finished in less than 5 minutes and the ingredients are things you may already have on hand.
There are four ingredients needed for Grown Up Caramel Apple Dippers – caramels, heavy cream, rum and apples. Place the caramels, cream, and rum in a microwave safe bowl and cook in the microwave for 45 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir ingredients together until you have a smooth, and creamy blend. Slice apples and serve. That’s it!!
We ate our dippers with our hands, but you may want to serve the dippers with fondue forks, or tooth picks for easier dipping. Our hands had caramel all over them, when we were snapping photos for this post.
Side note, we enjoyed our dippers with a crisp Granny Smith apple, but if you are a fan of Bananas Foster, you might want to try dipping a fresh banana into the caramel, too. Just saying.
What are you waiting for? Grab some caramels and start making yourself some dippers today.
Enjoy Halloween. Stay safe and have fun.
