Disney Copycat Apple Pie Caramel Apples Recipe
Today I’m sharing my all-time favorite Caramel Apple with you, a copycat recipe for Disney’s Apple Pie Caramel Apple.
Last month we were at Disneyland celebrating my 1-year-old’s birthday. I don’t know about you, but I always plan out my meals in advance to take advantage of all the amazing eats that Disney has to offer. Their Apple Pie Caramel Apple was high on my list this time around. I was devastated to find out that they were all sold out. Boo-Hoo. All month-long I couldn’t stop thinking about the Apple Pie Caramel Apple that I didn’t get. So to remedy that I finally decided to recreate them for myself.
All you need are just 4 ingredients:
- Granny Smith Apples
- Branch’s Milk Maid Caramels
- Ghirardelli White Chips
- Cinnamon & Sugar
Cook’s Note for Disney Copycat Apple Pie Caramel Apples Recipe:
- Patience is key with these apples. You must allow the caramel to set on the apples before dipping them into the white chocolate. Trust me if you don’t wait, you’ll have a sticky mess on your hands, the counter top… basically just all over.
- Note that you will need 5 Popsicle sticks and a sheet of wax paper for this recipe.
- These Caramel Apples will keep in an air-tight container, in the refrigerator, for up to 1 week.
- Serves: 5 Caramel Apples
- Serving size: 1 Caramel Apple
- 1 14-ounce package Branch's Milk Maid Caramels
- 5 medium Granny Smith apples
- 1 11-ounce bag Ghiradelli Classic White Chips
- 3½ Tablespoons cinnamon sugar (store bought or 3 Tablespoons white sugar + 1½ teaspoons cinnamon mixed together)
- 5 Popsicle sticks
- Prepare a baking sheet with wax paper sprayed lightly with non-stick cooking spray, set aside.
- Melt the caramels as per the package instructions.
- While to caramels are melting, wash the apples and pat dry completely.
- Before dipping, allow the caramel to sit for 5 minutes. Pierce the apples with the Popsicle sticks and dip into the melted and slightly cooled caramel. Using a rubber spatula, scrape the excess caramel off the bottom of the apple and place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining apples. Place the apples in your refrigerator for 30 minutes, or until the caramel is set.
- Place the white chips in a medium heat-proof bowl and cook on half power for 1 minute. Stir and cook for 30 seconds on half power. Stir again and repeat until the chips are melted.
- Remove the apples from the refrigerator and spread the white chocolate on each apple with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar and place the apples back on the baking sheet. Return the apples to the refrigerator to set, about 30 minutes.
