Recipe: Caramel Apples

Now that we're in the throws of autumn, Mary and I are soaking in the cooler mornings, changing leaves and the fall offerings cropping up everywhere we look.

In the spirit of the season and with this year's apple picking trip, I recently whipped up a batch of caramel apples in collaboration with's lifestyle blog and had fun pairing this classic treat with grown-up toppings for a gourmet twist.

Crushed pistachios, dried banana chips and giant flakes of Maldon salt were among my coatings of choice — and I realized just how much room for creative choice and personal taste there is when making caramel apples.

This batch of 8 apples took a little over an hour to make from prep to finish once all the ingredients and kitchen supplies are gathered, so the project could make for a simple weekend activity to partake in with friends over drinks.

Make it a kid-friendly activity by subbing in their favorite toppings (chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, or heck, even sprinkles).

Head on over to to find my full recipe and tutorial for whipping together a batch of these deliciously grown up caramel apples of your own — and we'd love to know, what's your favorite apple topping combination?
