Instructions Checklist

  • Combine caramels and water in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring often, until caramel melts and is smooth. Stir in the vanilla. Dip each apple into the caramel and gently run apples around insides of saucepan to scrape off some of the caramel. Scrape excess caramel from the apple bottoms using the side of the saucepan. Place on the aluminum foil. Sprinkle lightly with the coarse salt and chill.

  • Put the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Drizzle over the apples and return them to the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Great combo with the salt and the sweet sugary caramel. These are different from the usual and looked pretty too. Only you have to work fast because the caramel hardens and the salt wouldn't stick. I dipped all apples first then did the salt and the chocolate last but like I said the salt didn't stick and I kind of had to press the pieces into the caramel. These are even better tasting than the plain caramel apples. If you like the contrast of sweet/salty you'll like these. Thanks for the great idea!!! I had so much fun making these. Read More

This is soooo much better rolled in pretzel pieces than just plain coarse salt. The pretzels paired with the chocolate and caramel made these wonderful! Read More

Hands down most DELICIOUS way to eat a caramel apple. The combo of sweet crunchy tart salty is to die for. We prefer to omit the chocolate. You really just need to strategically place a few large grains of the salt on the caramel. That is A LOT of salt on the apples that are pictured. Fleur de sel is always a treat if you have it. And always use a tart variety apple NEVER Red Delicious. Read More

Good caramel apples but I suggest much less salt on the ingredients list. All you need is a couple pieces per apple. I wasn't thinking and made the mistake of using dark chocolate chips and they just don't work with the sweet salty and tart of the apples. I bet these are great with semi-sweet chips. Read More

I normally love salty sweet combo's but this one didn't do it for me. I found the tart/salty/sweet combo to be strange in this case. Read More
