There’s really just something so whimsical and fabulous about caramel apples. Childhood memories? The combination of sweet, salty and tart?  The love of consuming anything on a stick? Here’s my slightly sophisticated version, topped with lavender, rose sugar and finely shaved coconut.

  • 6 Granny smith apples, any variety is ok here, Granny seems to hold up the best and makes for the most tart!
  • 1 cup organic sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Pinch baking soda
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Lavender sugar
  • Light fluffed coconut shavings
  • Rose Sugar
  • Fine Sea salt

Directions:

  • Place popsicle stick into each apple
  • To make the caramel: In a large saucepan,  melt the sugar, corn syrup and water; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in baking soda. Mix in the butter until melted; slowly begin to add the cream. ** Make sure to stir constantly using a rubber spatula.
  • Cook and stir until a candy thermometer reads 242° (firm-ball stage). Remove from heat and cool to 200°.
  • Place lavender sugar + coconut + all toppings in shallow plates. Dip apples into caramel mixture until completely coated, then dip the bottom of each in desired toppings. Return to baking sheet + chill in the fridge to set.
