Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
- 2 large red delicious apples
- 30 caramel candy squares
- 6 tablespoons whipping cream
- 4 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons cannabutter
- 1 cup of chocolate chips
- 1 cup sprinkles
- 1 cup crushed peanuts
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- 20 lollipop or popsicle sticks
- Sharp knife
- Microwave safe bowl
- Parchment paper
- Baking sheet
- Topping bowls
Wash the apples with warm water and then pat them dry as any remaining moisture will keep the caramel from sticking to the skin.
Slice the apples each into 10 medium-sized wedges, leaving the skin on and removing the core along with any visible seeds, and then sprinkle the lemon juice over them to keep them fresh and crisp.
Add the caramel candies, whipping cream, and cannabutter to a microwave-safe bowl, then heat them in the microwave on high for 30 seconds.
After 30 seconds, remove the bowl from the microwave and whisk the ingredients together.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 until the caramel has completely melted, and you’re able to evenly combine all of the ingredients into a thick caramel paste.
Once the caramel mixture is ready for dipping. It’s time to prepare the topping ingredients by pouring them all into open-faced bowls and lining them up on the counter for easy access.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and then take a lollipop stick and pierce it into the bottom middle of an apple wedge.
Dip the apple slice into the caramel mixture until it has a thick coating, then gently press each one into your topping of choice or use a spoon to sprinkle a variation of several different options.
Once you’re satisfied with the toppings, place the freshly prepared apple pop onto the sheet of parchment paper to harden.
Continue dipping the apple wedges followed by toppings until the caramel mixture gets too thick to work with, at which point, you’ll need to microwave it in 3 seconds increments again until it softens so that you can keep going until they’re all finished.
These caramel apple pops take mere minutes to harden, but once they’re set, they should be transferred to the fridge inside of an appropriate airtight container or separate plastic baggies.
Caramel apple pops can last for up to 1 week in the fridge, but they must consistently be stored in a cold temperature for that to happen, and it can make them hard to chew. They are much softer at room temperature, but if they’re kept this way, then these delicious sweets should be enjoyed within 24 hours of making them.
