These easy Baked Chocolate Caramel Apples are so quick and easy to prepare, even easier to eat, and best of all, they’re super delicious!
I’ve been making caramel apples since my oldest was small, and it’s one of our favorite fall traditions. When the kids were younger, they used to chew on the caramel a little bit, and after a few futile attempts to get a bite, I would slice the apples so that they could actually taste them.
Then, the Hubs and I would get the the leftovers.
Of course, now that the kids are older, they all want their own apples, but even the older ones admit that it’s hard to finish the entire thing. And neither Hubby nor I want to eat the half-chewed leftovers!
This baked version is a lot neater and way less filling. I basically cut the apples in half, scoop out the middles and fill them with caramel candies before popping them into the oven.
My little guy was helping me in the kitchen today, and even he was surprised at how easy this method is.
When the caramels were melted, I added some chocolate chips and a sprinkle of cinnamon. If you know me, you know I gotta add cinnamon!
And since I love the taste of salted caramel, I added some sea salt over the melting chocolate.
And because my kids love ice cream (and I love them), I topped it all off with vanilla ice cream and just a teeny little bit more caramel.
