Caramel apples look good enough to sink your teeth into — but we've all learned the hard way that they're not that easy to eat. If you're already hankering for a fall (and especially for a Halloween-inspired) treat, we've solved the problem of gooey apple vs. tooth for you already. Adorable and delicious mini caramel apple bites are easy to nibble on, and we think they taste even better than the real thing.
To get the party started, we tried crushed peanuts, assorted sprinkles and sweetened coconut flakes, but so many toppings come to mind! Crushed pretzels, crackers, mini M&M'S... and the list goes on! Adding kosher or sea salt to the melted caramel gives it that addictive salted caramel taste we love, but the salt is optional. You'll have so much fun with these, we promise.
Tip: You may notice with some of your caramel apple bites that the caramel settles a bit at the bottom of the cupcake wrapper. What's nice about using the wrappers is that you can easily push the pliable caramel back up over the apple bite by gently squeezing the wrapper upward.
