Chocolate Caramel Apples in Crushed Pretzels recipe

Nowadays you can find caramel apples slathered in just about any candy under the sunóbut the heavy coatings often overwhelm the delicate flavors of the apple. Here, just a swirl of chocolate and dusting of pretzels accentuate, rather than hide, the sweetness of the apples.


4 large green apples
1 cup mini pretzels, crushed
1 (8-ounce) package soft caramels
2 ounces semisweet chocolate or chocolate chips


1) Insert Popsicle sticks into the stem end of each apple. Set aside. Place pretzels in a large bowl; set aside.

2) Combine caramels and chocolate in a double boiler; melt over medium heat, stirring constantly, about 15 minutes.

3) Dip apples into melted caramel mixture; roll in crushed pretzels to coat. Place dipped apples on wax paper; refrigerate until hardened, about 30 minutes.
