Crazy for Caramel Apples

Caramel covered applesAs I bite into my first nut-covered Caramel Apple of the season (my favorite season!), I realize that there could suddenly be a unique opportunity explore and rank the caramel apples around town. Maybe there are other C.A. aficionados like myself who don’t want a mealy, soft inside despite the deep caramelly deliciousness on the outside. And as tempting as anything with sprinkles looks, rarely do fall-colored sprinkles replicate the same eye-pleasing result on your palate. But since I just moments ago started exploring the word of C.A.’s for the season, perhaps I just leave this post filled with other tidbits on this traditional treat, and keep hunting.

The C.A. Alternate: While searching for a recipe for my favorite kind of Caramel Apple, topped with grapenuts, I came across this blog by Busy Mommy. She provides a recipe for caramel covered grapes, a great alternative and small- bite edition to the traditional. This weekend, when found up to my elbows in excess spiderwebs of caramel, I attempted my own. I’m not scared to admit they were heinous looking, as were the drooping, pooping CA’s, but both were delicious. I think pretty food only exists in the kitchens of food photographers. Thankfully, I’m not scared to eat ugly things.
