Peanut Butter Caramel Apples

  • 3/4 C peanut butter
  • 3 TbĀ coconut oil
  • 1/3 C finely crushed graham crackers
  • 1/2 C powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste (We are fans of Nielsen Massey)
  • 6 of your favorite apples (crispy is best for this!)
  • 6 wooden dowels
  • 1 batch Caramel Sauce (recipe follows)
  1. CombineĀ first 5 ingredients.
  2. Wash and core apples.
  3. Fill with peanut butter mixture. Place in fridge a few hours to firm up peanut butter mixture.
  4. Tip apple so peanut butter filling is at 3 o clock. Push wooden dowel 3/4 way in (dowel is going in perpendicular to peanut butter!)
  5. Dip in caramel. Let sit on greased wax paper until set and enjoy!

Caramel Sauce

  • 2 C brown Sugar
  • 1 C agave syrup
  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk

  1. In medium saucepan combine sugar, agave and butter.
  2. Turn heat to medium, when butter is melted, stir in sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Insert candy thermometer into pan.
  4. Increase heat slightly. While stirring constantly, cook until sauce reached 230-235 degrees.
  5. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla bean paste.

*Try dipping different shapes and varieties of apples and topping with different treats!
