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!!
I think everyone was pretty darn grateful. That’s the spirit of Thanksgiving, right?
- One package of Caramel Apple Wraps
- 5 apples (your favorite kind, I used Honeycrisp)
- 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (1/2 a bag)
- 1 cup crushed Corn Flakes cereal
- 1/2 cup chopped, toasted pecans
- 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 tsp. sea salt (optional)
- 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)
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
