I have to give credit to Nathan, one of my very best friends from college, for introducing me to these Apple Pie Caramel Apples. We were at Disneyland a few weeks ago and we were able to meet up with him and he was kind enough to buy us one of these. These Apple Pie Caramel Apples instantly became my new favorite Disneyland treat! I had to do a little bit of experimenting to get these right… first of all, you need to get good caramel. I tried a few different caramels… cheap-o caramel that I found in bulk (got too hard) and Kraft caramel bits. I liked the caramel bits much better. I also loved that I didn’t spend an hour unwrapping caramels. Yes, the bits are more expensive– but really it is worth it to me to spend a couple bucks more and not waste an hour of my life unwrapping.. but, again, that’s just me.
Next, you can either go with melted white chocolate chips or white chocolate melting chocolates. I liked them both ways. The melting chocolates seemed to get harder and chip off a little more but it all tasted the same.
Now for the “crust”. You can either use cinnamon flavored graham crackers or you can get an actual pre-made pie crust, add a little cinnamon and sugar and process it in a food processor. I am pretty sure Disneyland actually uses crust… but for me it was cheaper to do the graham crackers because I had some on had. I thought both ways tasted great.. I may have even preferred the graham cracker slightly more. It really depends on if you are dead-set on making them the authentic way or if you are willing to cut corners a little.
Now.. on to the recipe and then I will tell you more about our magical trip!
