Pecan Crunch Caramel Apples

Oops, I did it again

My mommy made me do it! I told you she was a terrible influence. I walk into the kitchen, still enjoying my Thanksgiving vacation, and a package of Caramel Apple Wraps was sitting on the counter. A not-so-subtle hint. 

I can take a hint.

Doesn’t take much more to have me pulling out the apples and melting up some chocolate…

And toasting pecans…

And smashing up Corn Flakes…

And and and and…

I just couldn’t help myself!!

Ingredients
  1. One package of Caramel Apple Wraps
  2. 5 apples (your favorite kind, I used Honeycrisp)
  3. 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (1/2 a bag)
  4. 1 cup crushed Corn Flakes cereal
  5. 1/2 cup chopped, toasted pecans
  6. 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  7. 1 tsp. sea salt (optional)
Instructions
  1. Follow package directions on the Caramel Apple Wraps to cover the apples. (the directions on mine say to cover the apple then to bake for 5 minutes at 200 degrees F to melt the caramel onto the apple)
  2. After the apples have been covered in caramel and cooled, melt your chocolate in a wide-brimmed bowl (in the microwave, on half-power, microwave for 1 minute, stir, then microwave again for 1 minute; continue to do this until your chocolate is melted). In a separate wide-brimmed bowl, combine the crushed cereal, pecans and white chocolate chips. Sprinkle the salt in and toss it all together.
  3. Use a spoon to help you dip a Caramel Apple in the melted chocolate and create an even coating of chocolate, scraping off any extra. Then, roll the apple in the bowl of cereal/pecans/white chocolate chips, using your fingers to gently press the mixture into the chocolate on the apple. Set the finished apple on a piece of parchment to set. Repeat with the remaining 4 apples, until they're all coated.
  4. Refrigerate to set and save (covered in plastic wrap) until you're ready to enjoy them. Slice the apple off the core to make eating and sharing it a little easier. Apples will keep, covered in the fridge, for 1 week.
