Bacon Caramel Apples


July 10, 2013

If your caramel cools as you’re dipping the apples, gently rewarm it, adding a little more water if needed.

  • Makes: Makes 6 caramel apples.


6 small apples

3-4 slices bacon

1 bag (11 oz.) caramels, unwrapped

3 Tbsp. water


1Wash and dry the apples well, and insert a wood or paper stick into the stem end of each.

2Chop the bacon and cook it until crisp; remove with a slotted spoon to drain on paper towels, then crumble or roughly chop. Reserve 1 Tbsp. of the drippings and pour it into a small saucepan with the caramels and cream or water. Cook over medium-low heat until completely melted and smooth.

3Dip the apples into the caramel, turning to coat completely, then allow excess caramel to drip off and set on a parchment-lined sheet. Sprinkle with bacon while the caramel is still soft, then let set.
