Caramel Apple Pops

Posted on in Holidays/ Recipes

With Halloween just two sleeps away we had some fun on the weekend and made these fun Caramel Apple Pops treats! My kids hadn’t ever tried caramel apples before and I know what a pain they can be to bite into so we decided to do the “pops” route and cut the apples into a slice, core them and stick them onto sticks to make them much easier to manage, and eat!
They turned out super cute and really delicious actually. We didn’t use super hard caramel either, so you have to freeze them slightly and enjoy right away – which my kids LOVED and made for a nice, cool treat!
I know Halloween is super close so if you are looking for a quick, easy and fun treat to make these would be a great idea – even for right after trick-or-treating!

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium-sized apples
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 stick butter or margarine

Directions:

  1. Wash and core your apples. set aside
  2. In a saucepan heat ingredients (minus apples) on medium-low heat, stirring gently during cooking
  3. Using a candy thermometer heat the ingredients until 225 degrees
  4. Allow cooling for about 5-7 minutes
  5. While caramel is cooling slice your apples, insert popsicle sticks and place on cookie sheet
  6. Dip apples rotating carefully to allow excess caramel to drip off
  7. Sprinkle Halloween (or any) sprinkles ontop of apples
  8. Cool in fridge/Freezer about 1 hour

Given the fact that Halloween only comes around once a year, and although the kids get TONS of candy I don’t mind them having a fun treat like this one to celebrate the day. I’m actually really looking forward to staying in with the toddler and baby, and handing out candy to the trick-or-treaters! I plan to take my older girls out once dad gets back home with the smaller kiddos, so it will be a new tradition this year for us.
We can enjoy some caramel apple pops while we wait and hand out candy to the little ghosts and goblins that come to our door.

What are you doing this Halloween? Any fun treats planned for you?

    Best idea ever! I love caramel apples, but they are so hard to bite into. Well, this totally solves that!

    I really like this idea. It is easier to do and eat. I’m pretty sure my kiddos would love it. I’m going to be making this in the Halloween night because it gives them a little fruit to give them some energy for trick-or-treating LOL.

    These are really cute and simple. I love how they look so much easier to eat than a whole caramel apple, not to mention the caramel-to-apple ratio here is much better in my opinion.

    We like to do this as well because it is easier to eat. We put our caramel on much heavier and roll ours in nuts, chocolate chips and all kinds of goodies. Drizzle them with all kinds of chocolate.

    This is such a great idea!! We love caramel apples but they are so hard to eat when they’re whole. This is the perfect serving size.

    This is a great treat idea. I think these seem much easier to eat than whole caramel apples.

    These are cool. I love that they are fresh apples with a little sweetness added to them! I would love to eat one of them right now. Staying up late doing a bit of work!

    I would love to make this for my kids as an after school snack. This would be easier to eat than caramelized apple.

    These look so good. It will be way easier to eat than the full cararmel apples. My kids can never bite them.

    Those look delicious! My kids would really love eating these and helping make them. Looks like we’ll have to get the ingredients to give them a try.

    What a totally great treat! This is good for those of us with teeth problems and those that are wanting to cut back on sweets. Notice Babushka said cut back, porque nobody is gonna cut out caramel apples all the way!! Gracias for the idea.
