What ingredients you need to make homemade caramel apples:

  • Granny smith apples, washed and stem taken off
  • Extra thick skewers
  • Grass-fed butter or ghee
  • Maple syrup
  • Tapioca or arrowroot flour (this is needed so the caramel thickens!)
  • Crushed up nuts or chocolate or anything you want!

How to make paleo candied apples:

  1. Add each stick to the apple (where the stems are) and set aside. I like to keep the apples in the fridge too so they stay cold and the caramel hardens faster but totally optional
  2. In a small pot, melt the butter then add in the maple syrup and bring to a low boil
  3. Simmer and continue to stir constantly for about 4-6 minutes then add in the tapioca and whisk/mix very well over low heat or turn the heat completely off
  4. Once the mixture is runny but a little thicker, immediately coat each apple in the caramel sauce then sprinkle desired crushed nuts or any toppings
  5. Allow the apples to set for a bit then enjoy!
