10 DIY Unique Gourmet Caramel Apples

When it comes to caramel apples sky’s the limit of the different ways you can decorate them. Starting with the traditional plain caramel apple to a caramel apple infused with Fireball alcohol, the options are endless. We’ll share ideas we found across the internet and ingredients we carry that you can use to create your caramel apples today!

Once you’ve coated your apples with caramel you can start decorating them immediately after! 

If you are NOT dipping in chocolate: Leave the caramel as it or coat with preferred toppings immediately. Then place in the fridge for 5-10 minutes to help the apples set. Do not store apples in the fridge.

If you ARE dipping in chocolate: Let caramel completely set before dipping in chocolate. Melt the chocolate according to package directions. Then either dip the apples in chocolate or drizzle over the top. Then add desired toppings immediately and let set.

Tip: For fastest setup and to minimize “feet”, refrigerate apples after dipping for 10-15 minutes. Avoid prolonged refrigeration to prevent condensation.
