Mini-caramel apples, using crab apples and toothpicks! So cute and delicious.
We followed the recipe on the Kraft caramel candy package to make the caramel apples, and then waited 15 min for them to harden a bit in the refrigerator before dipping them again in melted chocolate. Then a quick dip into the toppings: peanuts, cashews, candy canes, pretzels, sweetened coconut flakes, and sprinkles. We crushed up the candy canes with a mallet, but ended up doing it again in the food processor to make them fine enough for the tiny apples.
