Sooo many caramel apple pics coming in this weekend!! Love it!!!! Are you making apples??? . . What toppings are you using?? OR what toppings would you use if you were making them??? . . Adding toppings is ALL about the timing!!! . . There are two timelines to follow: . . FIRST! Adding toppings directly to the caramel! This needs to be done as soon as your caramel is dipped. It needs to be sticky!! So, dip your caramel and then quickly get your toppings on. We keep the toppings in a bowl and roll the apples right into the bowl. Don’t be afraid to push them on!! Once covered with your toppings, place your apple on a piece of parchment in the fridge. The caramel will finish cooling and your toppings will stay in place. After 5-10 minutes of cooling, you can add a drizzle of chocolate for a finishing touch!! This first method works best for big chunks of topping- like peanuts, crushed candy bars, pretzels, coconut flakes, and our newest obsession: cacao nibs! . . SECOND: Adding a dip of chocolate over the caramel! For this method to work, your caramel needs to be cool before adding chocolate. So, dip the apple, let it cool for a bit and then place it in the fridge on a piece of parchment. After 5-10 minutes, remove the apple and dip in the chocolate. The cool caramel will help the chocolate set quickly, keeping it on the apple. If you want to add some fine toppings to the chocolate, wait for the chocolate to set for a bit. We watch for the edge of the chocolate to look matte instead of shiny and then add the toppings. This works great for adding cinnamon sugar, fine coconut, sprinkles, crushed Oreo, and little candies. . . So! There you have it!! Hopefully these tips will help your caramel adventures!!
