Kraft Halloween Survival Guide & Mini Caramel Apple Pops
“This post is sponsored by Lunchbox. All views expressed are that of our own.”
Can you believe we are already just about two weeks into the somewhat chilly month of October? Warm summer days are a thing of the past and now hot cocoa, and pumpkin spice everything is the new norm. I have been enjoying the cooler days, pumpkins, and of course apple season.
My love for apples is what really inspired me to make these Mini Caramel Apple Pops.
Smooth, velvety caramel wrapped around a crunchy, slightly tart apple is my absolute favorite fall snack! I just love how versatile candy apples can truly be. They taste great wrapped in caramel, swizzled in chocolate and covered with crunchy candies. The only issue I tend to always have is that they are just too rich and filling to eat in one sitting. Rather than waste half the apple, or have one part go brown, I decided that Mini Caramel Apple Pops were the way to go this year!
Around this time of year I just love relishing in spooky and creepy snacks! In just about two weeks many of us will be hosting or attending Halloween or fall inspired parties. I always love to find new Halloween-inspired snacks and this year Kraft released tons of spooky recipes and ideas in their Halloween Survival Guide.
The Kraft Halloween Survival Guide is jam-packed with super easy Halloween snacks and recipes that feature Kraft products. I love how easy the recipes truly are, and just how festive they look. As mentioned, I decided to re-create the Mini Caramel Apple Pops which featured Kraft Caramels and white BAKER’s Chocolate. These products can be easily found at Walmart and are very reasonably priced.
For these Mini Caramel Apples I used the following supplies & ingredients:
- Candy apples/cake pop sticks
- 4-5 Granny Smith Apples
- 1 bag of Kraft Caramels
- 1 package of White BAKER’s Chocolate
- 2 tablespoons of water
- Halloween inspired sprinkles or Planter’s Peanuts
Wash apples, remove core, and slice apples into 6 thick wedges
Carefully insert a stick into each wedge
Place Kraft Caramels into a small stockpot and heat with the water until smooth and creamy
Dip each apple into the caramel and place on a wax paper lined baking tray
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the white BAKER’s Chocolate for 3o seconds and then 10 second intervals until smooth and creamy.
Dip wedge half way into chocolate and then coat them with Halloween sprinkles or Planter’s Peanuts
Place on a baking sheet until hardened and then place in treat bag with ribbon or on a serving tray.
