Even though people are often sad to say goodbye to summer, the fall comes with a lot of great perks. We get to snuggle in our favorite sweaters, brew cups of tea, enjoy the crisp air, and treat ourselves to some snacks reserved for the cooler weather. With those delicacies comes caramel apples, the tasty indulgence that transports us back to our youth in one bite. We're here to teach you how to make caramel apples just as sweet as the ones you used to love when you were younger.
There are lots of ways you can make caramel apples your own. You can drizzle chocolate over your apples, roll them in peanuts or crushed walnuts, or use different types of apples to alter the sweetness. It's up to you how to make caramel apples that cater best to your tastes, but keep in mind that you'll need to roll your apples in garnishes while they're still hot.
If you don't quite have the ingredients required to make caramel of your own you can always melt store- bought caramels. All you need to do for this is get:

An added bonus is that if you need to bring a snack with you to an autumn potluck, you can make an adorable miniature version of caramel apples too.

Teaching yourself how to make caramel apples is a terrific way to munch on the sweet treat that made our childhoods. They may have seemed like an impossible snack to make when we were kids, but they're super simple and a versatile treat to easily make your own. They're also great snacks to have your little ones bring with them to school as a classroom treat. Grab some chocolate syrup, crushed nuts, or even your favorite candy like M&M's to make things even more decadent.
