Popcorn Caramel Apples

https://www.jollytime.com/?post_type=kd_recipe&p=20012

  • 4 apples

Popcorn adds just the perfect crunchy addition to these indulgent caramel apples.

Ingredients

Amount Ingredient
1 quart freshly popped popcorn (make sure to remove unpopped kernels)
1 (9.5 ounce) package caramels, unwrapped (35 caramels)
1/4 cup light cream or "half and half"
4 lollipop sticks (or wooden candy apple sticks)
Sugar sprinkles
Decorative ribbon, optional

Directions

  • Place popcorn in a large bowl; set aside. Place a sheet of waxed paper on work surface.
  • Heat caramels and cream in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.  Stir frequently until caramels are melted and cream is blended into caramels.  Push a stick into an apple center and dip into caramel.  Spoon caramel over apple to coat.
  • Place caramel-coated apple into bowl of popcorn and press popcorn onto caramel to cover. Place apple on waxed paper to set; repeat with remaining apples.
  • Place chocolate chips in a small, resealable plastic bag.  Microwave 10 seconds and press chips to aid melting.  Repeat, heating at 10-second intervals, until chips are completely melted.  Cut a small corner off bag and squeeze chocolate onto each apple allowing chocolate to drip down sides.  Sprinkle with sugar sprinkles.
  • Tie a bow to each apple stick, if desired.  To serve, cut apple into slices.
