Make scrumptious Christmas apples!
The hottest gourmet gift this holiday season? Dressed-up caramel apples!
Love snowmen? Try the Snowman Caramel Apple ($27) from Mrsprindables.com—so big it serves 8! To DIY, replace apple stems with Popsicle sticks and swirl apples in melted caramel; let cool. Repeat with melted white candy melts. Use candy decorating pens (such as Wilton) to add Frosty’s facial features!
Candy fan? Harry & David offers apples trimmed with holiday candies for about $20 a piece. Why not give yours a swirl in mini M&M’S or crushed candy canes? Can’t resist Rudolph? Re-create WilliamsSonoma’s reindeer apples by dipping caramel apples in chocolate, then quickly affixing red candy noses and pipe cleaner antlers. When chocolate sets, use a white icing pen to add eyes.
