"This is such a fabulous recipe! It is my go-to recipe for soft caramels. I like to sprinkle the caramels with some granular sea salt when they are almost firm." – larkspur

Apple Topaz Candies
Rating: 4.5 stars 8

An apple goes a long way in this candy recipe! Little apple bits are rolled in cinnamon and sugar, caramel, and chopped nuts. Although they do take some work, they're well worth it. They're just perfect for harvest parties in the fall!
