Toby loves apples, so I was itching to try this with him, and it didn’t disappoint, taking us minutes and ending up being one tasty after dinner treat – don’t you just love autumn crafts that taste good?! You can go as professional as you like, or you can go for a slightly more homemade look if you want to – I guess it depends on the age of your child, and whether you want to be Pinterest parent of the year!
Here’s what we did to make ours:
- Melon baller (or you could cut the apple into slices)
- 2 apples
- A tin of carnation caramel
- 12-15 skewers
We have a melon baller, so I used this to make little round balls of apple using 2 apples to make 8-10 balls, then pushed them on to a skewer (these can be found in supermarkets and craft shops, think cake pops) and lastly we dipped them into a pot of pre-made caramel sauce. Once they had been dipped (which Tobes thought was amazing fun!) we put them upside down on a baking tray and into the fridge until after dinner (approx 3-4 hours). Mmm! They were delicious, and we gobbled them all!
They aren’t chewy like traditional toffee apples, more caramel apples done this way, but the boys don’t like getting toffees tuck in their mouths and I’m conscious that Roo might lose teeth if he has toffee now!
