Inside Out Caramel Apples

If you have been a follower of my blog for long, you know that I have issues with apples...buying too many and then not eating them quickly enough:) I bought a couple of apples and some caramel bits with plans to make some fun caramel apples with the boys after my friend Angie posted pics of her yummy caramel apples. Somehow life got in the way, the apples never got made, and they started to get a little too soft to eat on their own. So I decided to try and salvage them {like I always do} with a fun new recipe I call
Inside Out Carmel Apples!
I started with 3 apples, some caramel bits, and some peanuts.
I chopped the peanuts in my mini food processor to make them more like the peanuts that you would roll a caramel apple in.
I cute the top off the apple with a sharp knife.
Then scooped out the core and the seeds. I found that the pointed end of a spoon worked really well to get all the core out of the apple.
Then I loaded the hollowed out apples with layers of caramel bits and chopped peanuts.
I topped each apple off with a dollop of butter....because butter makes everything better:) Then I baked them in the oven on 350 for about 30-40 minutes {just until the apple is nice and soft}.
This was a really fun way to eat a caramel apple...and it would be even more awesome with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Oh wow, now that looks good. I might have to take one more picking from our apple tree.
I was also going to ask for some help. I have agreed to decorate a table for a women's night out at church. I was trying to think of a party favor and wanted to see if you had any suggestions. The theme is Pearls of Wisdom.
Thanks for the help and have a great day!

Kelly @ Blessed Mommy, Blessed Wife said...

Yum, yum, yum! Want a laugh? I bought a bag of caramels the other day and had my hubby put them out of reach of the kids. Well, I just saw your pics and took a little jaunt into the kitchen with my walker to retrieve said caramels...only to realize that out of the reach of kids means out of the reach of my crippled self!! ARGH!! I had to settle for chocolate covered raisin, ha!
