Caramel Apple Cups Recipe
- 3 whole Large Granny Smith Apples (or Any Apple Of Your Choice)
- 1 whole Large Lemon
- 2 cups Caramel Squares, Unwrapped
- 2 Tablespoons Corn Syrup
- ¼ cups Chopped Pecans (optional)
- Chocolate Sauce (optional)
- Cut your apples in half and use a melon baller to scoop out all but about 1/2 inch of the apple. This will form the cup.
- To keep the apples from turning brown, squeeze the juice from the lemon onto the apples and allow to set.
- 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. You will want to make sure that the inside of your apple is dry because if it is too wet, the caramel won’t stick.
- Pour the caramel into the hollowed out apples until just below the top. You can add the pecans or drizzle with chocolate if you want to add more toppings to the caramel apple.
- Place the apples in the refrigerator until the caramel has set.
Prep time is only 30 minutes. The caramel apple cups will be sticky and slightly messy, just like a traditional caramel apple. And totally worth it!
