I am not a huge fan of caramel apples (or giving my kids sugar ;), but when I found this idea, I just had to give it a try!
Toddler, Pre-K, K, 6 & Up
For this snack idea you will need:
- Apple(s) I just used 2 for my family. If you have more kids, you will want more apples
- Melon baller
- Caramel for melting
- Pretzel sticks or thin popsicle sticks
The woman who made the original idea has hers looking so much prettier than mine. I did not have a metal melon-baller, and my plastic one was struggling, so I used a metal measuring scoop spoon. It is a really cute, and easy snack to make, and you can add nuts or other toppings. Her caramel looks better too, it may be the brand I used, or that she melted pieces, and I just bought a tub of ready to microwave and dip caramel. However they look, just enjoy making them and eating them too!
Here is what the original idea looked like that I based my apples on.
