Ultimate Oreo Caramel Apples- Taste of Home Tuesday

Happy Halloween!  Weather's been a bit nuts here in New England, rain, heavy winds. We were without power for quite a while on Monday, and I had to toss most of my treat plans out the window.  Luckily, these Ultimate Oreo Caramel Apples come together in no time at all, and in a pinch, you can melt the caramels and chocolate on a gas grill :) I bought the caramel bits this year, so much easier than having to unwrap and melt the bigger chunks. I had semi-sweet chocolate on hand, so that's what I used.   I also threw in some Halloween sprinkles to add a little more color. Caramel and chocolate are two of my favorite flavors, and these didn't disappoint! Thank you so much to Jennifer G for sharing her recipe!

On Tuesdays, I like to share what my fellow Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editors have been making. This week, TammyCookBlogsBooks is sharing her review of  Healthy Baked Oatmeal.  I can't wait to give that a try! Do you have an amazing recipe you'd like to submit to Taste of Home?

Ultimate Oreo Caramel Apples
Fun treat for the kids, and the adults too!

  • 6 popsicle or lollipop sticks
  • 6 small apples - I used Honeycrisp
  • 14oz caramels
  • 2 Tablespoons 2% milk - I used whole milk
  • 20 Oreo cookies, crushed
  • 10oz dark chocolate chips- I used semi-sweet
  • 2 Tablespoons shortening

Insert pop sticks into tops of apples. Place caramels and milk in a small saucepan; heat and stir over medium-low heat 3-5 minutes or until smooth, stirring frequently. Dip apples in caramel mixture, coating completely. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet; let stand until set, about 10 minutes. Place crushed cookies in a shallow bowl. In top of a double boiler or a metal bowl over hot water, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip apples in chocolate mixture, allowing excess to drip off; dip in cookies, rolling to coat. Return to baking sheet; refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. Cut into wedges to serve. Yield: 12 servings. https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/ultimate-oreo-caramel-apples
