Why serve the same old candied apples this Halloween? Make white chocolate coconut dream apples and other caramel apple variations. It’s easy to come up with new twists on this traditional Halloween treat. Caramel candied apples can be pimped out, streamlined or gourmet qualified.
Get out your Halloween apron. Stir up a cauldron of caramel. Add chocolate, coconut, nuts and whatever else for the ultimate Halloween caramel candied apple variations. The white chocolate coconut dream apple is just one option. You can add anything you want to this time honored treat. What’s your candied apple fantasy?
To make white chocolate coconut dream apples you’ll need a few kitchen supplies. A double boiler is great for melting the caramel and white chocolate. If you don’t own a double boiler use a small pan inside a large pan. The large pan should have an inch or two of water in it. The ingredients for these candied apples need low temperature melting.
You’ll also need a wooden spoon to stir the melting caramel and white chocolate. The dipped white chocolate coconut dream apples will need to cool off on some waxed paper before eating. Spread a sheet out on the table before making these Halloween caramel candied apple variations. Melting and dipping the caramel and white chocolate must be done quickly so be prepared.
- 1 bag caramels
- 1 bag white chocolate chips
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1 tsp. water
- 1 tsp. vegetable oil
- 6 medium sized apples
- 6 craft sticks (sometimes included in the bag of caramels)
Wash and dry apples thoroughly. Poke a craft stick into each apple as a holder. Melt caramel pieces and water in a double boiler over medium heat until smooth. Don’t forget to remove the wrappers from the caramel! Dip and swirl apples in melted caramel until evenly coated. Place the coated apples stick side up on the waxed paper. Let caramel harden. This should take about an hour.
Melt white chocolate chips and vegetable oil in the double boiler over medium heat until smooth. Now you’re ready to turn plain caramel apples into coconut dream apples. Make sure the caramel is well set on the apples. Dip and swirl the apples quickly in the warm melted white chocolate. Roll the coated apples in coconut. Place the coated apples stick side up on the waxed paper.
Let the white chocolate harden on the apples before serving. These treats will be a big hit at your Halloween party. Creamy white chocolate with coconut pieces over a layer of chewy caramel. Don’t forget about the prize inside. I like these best with crispy, crunchy juicy Jonathon or Macintosh apples.
