{Sugar Free Sunday - Caramel Apples}

Hello Friends! I have the perfect sugar free fall treat for you today, CARAMEL APPLES! Yep, it's true, you CAN make sugar free caramel apples.  Here's what you'll need:

Sugar Free Caramel squares (I used nips - it took aprox. 1 bag per apple!)
Sugar Free Chocolate
Sliced Almonds
Granny Smith Apples
1 TBS Milk
Fake Dollar Bugs to creep out your family! : )

Wash & dry your apples very well, especially the "dry" part, caramel won't stick to a wet apple.
Melt caramel on low-medium heat, once it starts melting, add milk, stirring well.
Once the caramel is melted take it off the heat, let it cool for about 30 - 45 secs then dip your apple.  Once you've dipped your apple wait about another minute then roll in chocolate & nuts.

Put on parchment paper & let cool.

If you'd like to give an apple as a gift/treat for a friend or neighbor you can spruce it up with a little GARNISH!

Here's what I used
Clear Acetate Box
Wooden Disposable Knife
Bakery Twine

Isn't that apple so cute all dressed up as a gift! They are also really fun on a serving plate with fake bugs "crawling" all over them! bahahahahaha!
