Easy DIY Caramel Apple Recipe

Nicole Sanchez on

I love making caramel apples for my class in the fall, and this is my favorite recipe. Here’s a really easy and quick recipe for delicious caramel apples. You can make them for your class, serve them at a class party, or put them in clear plastic baggies as a back-to-school or fall gift. They also make a great treat for the teacher lounge or can be given as a gift to teacher colleagues. If you have access to a microwave or something to melt the caramels with at school, you could also make them with your students as a center or during your fall party.

Caramel Apple Recipe
As you can tell from the picture, this recipe is super easy to make and the photo pretty much tells it all. In addition to a few apples you'll just need a few more items.

one 14 ounce bag of caramels
2 tablespoons of milk
6 apples
chopped peanuts (optional)

Nut Warning
If you are planning to bring these to school, I strongly recommend that you first check to make sure there are not students or teachers in your building with peanut allergies.

1. Remove the stem from each apple and press a craft stick into the top.
2. Butter a baking sheet.
3. Place caramels and milk in a bowl and microwave for 2 minutes stirring once.
4. Allow to cool briefly.
5. Roll each apple quickly in caramel sauce until well coated.
6. Roll each apple in chopped nuts (only if none of your students have nut allergies)
7. Place apples on the prepared sheet to set.

Happy Teaching,
