Sweet tarts

Turn old-fashioned caramel apples into gourmet treats
Charity Ferreira

A crisp, slightly tart apple dipped in chewy caramel is a classic sweet. A caramel apple double-dipped in white chocolate and crunchy toffee is the stuff of dreams.

We love slicing up these over-the-top treats for a snack, but they also make great gifts or party favors. Place each apple on a foil liner and wrap in a clear cellophane bag, then tie a colorful ribbon around the stick.

Or arrange an assortment on a platter for a Halloween party centerpiece. Our master recipe will get you started. Then try our variations, or be creative and customize your own.
