Candy Apples

Ingredients

  • 4 apples (Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, or Jona Gold work best)
  • 4 candy apple sticks (or popsicle sticks)
  • 1 cup cashew butter
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • splash of vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • Suggested toppings: cacao nibs, orange segments, candied almonds, dehydrated raspberries, dried mulberries (dehydrated and finely minced)

Instructions

  1. Wash apples, but do not peel them.
  2. Dry them very well as the caramel doesn’t stick to moisture.
  3. Add cashew butter, 1/2 cup maple syrup, vanilla, and salt to food processor. Turn on for 1 minute.
  4. If caramel is too thick, drizzle a little more maple syrup in. (The more syrup you add, the runnier the caramel will be, and the easier the caramel will run down and fall off the apple.)
  5. Stick candy apple sticks in top center of your apple and dunk in caramel, turning quickly to coat. Place on a piece of wax paper containing candy apple toppings and roll apple until well coated. Put in freezer for 30 minutes.
