If you haven't noticed by now some stores are receiving their fall and Halloween candy. Fall is my favorite time of the year. I can't resist warm apple crisp served with vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce dizzled on top or hot apple cider or fresh baked pumpkin bread with milk chocolate chips. One of my favorite things to make and eat are gourmet caramel apples.
I first saw gourmet caramel style apples at The Rocky Mountain candy store. They crowd the storefront window causing anyone who walks by to look at them, tempting you to come in and purchase one. They are covered in a variety of chocolate, candies and nuts.
Tonight, I am going to make a few caramel apples as a special treat with my daughter. My favorite finish on top of the caramel and milk chocolate wrapped layers is white chocolate melted with peanut butter, which I drizzle over the apple.
What is your favorite finish to a gourmet caramel apple? Oreos? White chocolate? Nuts? Please share.
