A twist on the favorite caramel apple, in bite size form, adapted from the great idea via TK member Jackie Dodd of Domestic Fits.
Note: these are still sticky and slightly messy, just like a traditional caramel apple. And totally worth it!
Cut your apples in half and use a melon baller to scoop out the insides, leaving the walls intact at about 1/2 to 1/4 inch thickness.
Squeeze the juice from the lemon onto the apples and allow to set. (This will keep them from turning brown right away.)
To make the caramel sauce, melt the caramel squares in a sauce pan over low heat, with the corn syrup. Allow to cool for about 10-15 minutes.
Using a paper towel, wipe your apples down, removing the lemon juice as much as possible. (Important: if the inside of your apple is too wet, the caramel won’t stick.)
Pour the caramel into the hollowed out apples until just below the top. Sprinkle with pecans.
Chill in the refrigerator until the caramel has set, about 20 minutes. Cut into slices and drizzle with chocolate sauce, if desired.
I am a Mexican food fiend and nothing makes me happier than a big bowl of pico de gallo and chips. This is such an easy recipe and you can make it mild, medium or spicy depending on what you prefer. I like spicy, so jalapeno peppers are for me, but you could add habanero peppers if you like a lot of heat!
