Baked: Mini Chocolate Dipped Caramel Apples…

with Vanilla Swirls

After: *swoon*

Well, some Hollywood magic created by the incomparable Dame “Foodzilla” Melissa & editing prevented a beauty food shot or a glimpse of the guests enjoying  my Mini Chocolate Dipped Caramel Apples with Vanilla Swirls. The recipe is up here on Food Network’s PCO90210 website Saul the birthday boy, his wife & their guests enjoyed them very much. I have had a lot of people contact me after seeing the recipe up on the website & seeing it mentioned in the episode I had to give them a shout out on the blog.

I looooooove these mini apples I found at the register in the Farmer’s Market one day & couldn’t wait to make a SIngle Serving dessert out of one. No worries, if you can’t find them just take a melon baller to a full sized Granny Smith apple & you will achieve the same affect. I made these for Saul because I sensed there was still this big kid in him (did you see his reaction when I used my heart shaped Le Creuset mini cocotte to mold his mielie pap… adorable).  I swear a 35th birthday is the perfect day to celebrate the kid in you.

Originally I just wanted to dip in chocolate & use sprinkles but when I pulled out my chocolate box from the cupboards I noticed I had a few candy melts in different colors left. It was off to the craft store because I felt a colored drizzle would be sexy while sprinkles would just come across as child’s play. I used Wilton Candy Melts in Baby Blue, it’s a Vanilla flavored candy & I felt the color made it more masculine. I found matching ribbons at Michael’s with my favorite fleur de lis & couldn’t believe how perfect this was going to be for the party.These are so GOOD & so easy they may replace my cupcake obsession…. naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!



So, I tried the melon ball version of these tonight and there were a couple little hiccups. The biggest problem is that the caramel just doesn’t stick to the apple, it only sticks to the peel. I think the juicy-ness of the apple keeps the caramel from really adhering. I ended up softening the caramels individually and then flattening them with a rolling pin and wrapping the little balls. They are still cute but were a really big mess. Also, my melon baller broke after about 2 apples…
On a positive note they still taste amazing and we are licking the bowls right now. :)
