Caramel Apple Pops
Prep time

Cook time

Total time


Serves: 6-12 Pops

  • 1-2 unwaxed Granny Smith apple
  • About a dozen caramel candies + sprinkle of salt + 1 tb cream/milk
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Assorted candies, sprinkles, crushed cookies

  1. With a metal coffee spoon/melon baller, scoop out the meat from the apple. Blot dry.
  2. Wedge a stick into the tops of each ball and blot dry again. Keep in the freezer while working on the caramels.
  3. In a heat-safe cup, melt the caramels, salt, and cream in 30 second bursts. Stir and heat until melted.
  4. Work in batches and dry the balls again then dip into the melted caramel. Immediately roll in candies/sprinkles/cookies.
  5. Set each one in the freezer to set as you work on the rest.

A few tips/tricks:

  1. Use unwaxed, organic fruit {or scrub them clean before using}.
  2. Keep the scooped apples as bone-dry as possible.  Any trace of moisture will encourage the caramel to slip off.  Constantly blot the apples and try to keep some of its skin on each one.
  3. Work in batches, keeping both the un-dipped and dipped apples in the freezer.
  4. Allow the caramel to cool for 30-60 seconds before using.
  5. Eat immediately after the caramel sets up or keep in the freezer until ready to serve.  These are not good the next day.
