Make everyday an Autumn Festival with this healthy version of candy apples from the “un-cookbook” LOVE ON A PLATE by Cara Brotman and Markus Rothkranz. Without any sugar, corn syrup, or candy thermometer needed this recipe will make you wish apples were in season year-round.
Dry them very well as the caramel doesn’t stick to moisture.
Add cashew butter, 1/2 cup maple syrup, vanilla, and salt to food processor. Turn on for 1 minute.
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.)
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.
