Cooking with Ruthie logoCandied Choffy Caramel Apples

 

Ingredients:

 

2 Tbsp butter
6 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 C Ivory Choffy (not brewed)
2 Tbsp evaporated milk
6 fuji or honeycrisp apples
1 (11oz) pkg Kraft caramel bites
1 C milk chocolate chips
1 tsp canola oil
2 pieces parchment paper
6 wooden popsicle sticks or twigs

 

Candied Choffy:

 

  1. Melt butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
  2. Add brown sugar and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Add milk and stir until creamy, add choffy and stir to coat. (will be crumbly)
  4. Pour out onto parchment paper and spread to cool.
  5. Stir often while cooling to keep pieces separated.
  6. Once cool crumble with fingers if needed.
Caramel Apples:

 

  1. Wash and dry apples throughly and inserting wooden popsicle or twig into the center of each apple, place on parchment paper.
  2. Pour chocolate chips and oil in microwave safe bowl (I used a ceramic cereal bowl), microwave 30 seconds and stir well, microwave 15 seconds more, stirring until smooth.
  3. Repeat, if necessary, until smooth.
  4. Dip each apple in chocolate- tipping the bowl and pressing apple against sides to cover approximately 3/4 way up the apple.
  5. Set on parchment paper to set and cool.
  6. When chocolate is set up and hardened, prepare caramel for dipping.
  7. Melt Caramel bites according to package directions.
  8. Pour caramel into a small narrow bowl (I used a cereal bowl) very quickly dip each apple into caramel- tipping the bowl and pressing apple against sides to cover approximately 1/2 way up the apple.
  9. Work quickly to avoid melting too much of the chocolate layer on the apple.
  10. Press bottom of apple into the Candies Choffy and place back on parchment paper to set and cool.
  11. Eat once cooled and set up.
  12. Enjoy!
