Caramel Apple Slices

This month's Improv Cooking Challenge was Nuts and Caramel.  This is hosted by Nicole Little of Cookaholic Wife and there are some fun combo's of ingredients in the different months.   Last month it was Curry and Carrots, I made some Curried Carrot Hummus

This month though...

Nuts and Caramel were the stars, and together they're perfection to my mouth.

I make my own Caramel, and gift it out around Christmas and since Christmas is next month, this seemed a perfect time to make some. 
And I could use the Caramel for this months' challenge as well.

Caramel Apple Slice
 I remembered seeing some Caramel Apple Slices somewhere on the net, I'm sorry I don't remember where.
This clever person had drizzled caramel over some apple slices and decorated them.

They looked so good.

I've always felt that the best part of Caramel Apples has always been a bite of Caramel and a bite of Apple, for me at least.  I like the ratio of 1:1, Caramel and Apple.   But I always ran out of Caramel before the apple was gone.
Here's what I did.

Prepare the Caramel, whether you make your own or buy it, just warm it until it's just liquid enough to drizzle.  About a half cup will do one apple.
Then melt some Chocolate, about 1/4 cup.
Chop some nuts, I used Walnuts. 
Slice the apples into thick slices

 and put a stick in one end, cause you're making a 'lolly' apple slice.
Drizzle the caramel on the apple slice,

 and then some chocolate and a sprinkle of nuts.

Then take a big bite and make sure you've got the right proportion of caramel to apple,

 Cut up the rest and finish it off.
 decide that maybe you should play with it a little more and make another one.

Apples are good for you, aren't they?

  1. I would like to apply for the job of assuring that the chocolate/caramel/apple ratio is correct.

    1. Sure come on by. We can get into a sugar coma together.

  2. Oh dear, I think it needs more caramel. Oooops, now it needs some more chocolate. Oh my -- better even it out with another apple slice & a few more sprinkles of walnuts. Darn, needs more caramel... :D

    1. Were you watching me? I admit to, ummm, sampling to make sure I got the ratio's just right.

  3. I volunteer to be the back up ratio person. You know, once you and Wendy are in sugar comas, someone has to make sure they're okay. :)

    1. Me too, but I always run out of caramel before the apple is gone, but not anymore...
