prep time: 10 MINUTES

cook time: 30 MINUTES

total time: 40 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 3 apples
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 18 soft caramel candies
  • 1/4 cup water
  • optional: 1 chocolate candy bar for melted chocolate drizzle
  • optional: 1 Heath candy bar for chopped topping

Directions

1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut each apple in half from the top down.

Scoop out the core and a bit of the insides of the apple using a melon baller. Place all the apples in a 2 quart casserole dish.

3

Brush the top (flesh side up) of all the apples with melted butter. Sprinkle sugar and pumpkin pie spice over the top. Pour water in the pan to help steam apples.

Place 2-3 pieces of caramel candies in the middle of each apple, depending on the size of your apple. Return to bake for another 10-15 minutes until caramel is melted.

Chop the chocolate candy bar into pieces and place into a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds until melted. Stir and then drizzle over the apples.

7

Chop the Heath candy bar and sprinkle the crumbs over the apples. Enjoy!

Woman adding caramel to apples

Ready to up your caramel apple game?!

Consider baking a pan of these insanely delicious caramel stuffed apples for your next fall gathering!

These apples are spiced, roasted with sugar and butter and then stuffed with real caramels. The grand finale is a chocolate candy drizzle followed by chopped toffee candy bar crumbs.

Hip Tips:

  • Bake with either green or red apples! I think BOTH are yummy so I’d just go with the type of apple your family would prefer or what you find on sale at the store.
  • These Kraft wrapped caramel candies melted beautifully. And since they are individually wrapped, I asked my kids to unwrap them for me and then let them (and me!) enjoy a few as a thank you.
  • The chocolate drizzle and toffee bar crumbs are optional but oh so yummy. Feel free to skip if you’re going for a little less sweetness. I think adding chopped nuts or another favorite candy bar would be great too!

Easy Caramel Baked Apples

There’s nothing quite as comforting as the smell of baked apples!

My family loved this treat and I appreciated that it was easy to make and can be adapted to taste. It would be easy to double and make for a larger crowd too. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the amazing recipe! We just went apple picking so I’m definitely trying this for our tailgate party next weekend!

      Oh how fun! Enjoy Suzanne <3

    Where has this recipe been all my life? You all were some of my favorite people, but now! Now, my all time favorite people! This may be life changing for me- can’t wait to make them!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yasss!!! I love to hear that -Enjoy <3

  3. je

    Would this be good to serve the next day? I’m thinking this would make a yummy treat for my daughter’s class on her birthday.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hmm. Maybe if you can warm up again before serving. I felt like it was better a little warm.

  4. Brooke

    Sorry but what is the 1/4 cup water for? I don’t see it in the instructions but it is in the ingredient list

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh sorry- add it before roasting. Will fix. Thanks!

    Can you please consider changing the app back to where replies to comments are already expanded? I like to read all replies on a post and it’s getting tedious to tap view reply on each and every one. Thanks!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I’ll share your comment with the team- thanks!

    • juma

      I just have to agree with you looking at the other replies to posts….. I always find that others posts tips /suggestions and very helpful info, that will probably be missed due to the hidden replies.

    • Monkey

      I have the app on my android and the comments and replies are all expanded still.

    • lynnleco

      I agree!

  6. cantbewrong

    I could see trying this, not that I’ll eat it…house will smell good though and the fam may like it. I think I’ll skip the candy optionals and add a granola topping before baking. Finish it with a scoop of vanilla and call it a day!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow I love that idea!

  7. Jennifer

    I have almost all the ingredients for this except chocolate bar and drizzle. I guess I will have the less sweet version, pretty sure it’s still gonna be great!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes I bet it will!! I like another readers suggestion of serving it with vanilla ice cream! Yum 🤗

  8. T. Hummel

    I have been doing apples like this minus the caramel and chocolate for years. I sometimes use brown sugar instead of white sugar.

  9. Debbie

    So you drizzle the melted chocolate on the apples before putting the caramels in, then back in the oven?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Whoops I just switched that around in the directions. I melted the caramels and then did the drizzle-fixed. Thanks!
