Caramel and apples go together like strawberries and cream. While both are equally delicious on their own when paired together the flavor is phenomenal. I can remember the first caramel apple I had and continue to love them to this day. I tend to gravitate to the caramel apple flavor combination more during the fall months. That said, I also love making them with a plethora of toppings to give as gifts at the holidays. I rolled these caramel apples in salted peanuts, but you can certainly have fun with them and sprinkle with chocolate chips, crushed cookies and candies, toffee bits, peanut butter chips, M & M’s, sprinkles and more. No matter your preference make sure you add the toppings while the caramel is still warm and gooey fo the best results.
