Today I’m sharing my all-time favorite Caramel Apple with you, a copycat recipe for Disney’s Apple Pie Caramel Apple!
I don’t know about you, but anytime I’m at Disneyland I always plan out my meals in advance so I can take advantage of all the amazing eats. Disney Apple Pie Caramel Apples are always high on my list of foods to eat at Disneyland.
Now that it’s fall and the nearest Disneyland is hundreds of miles away, I’ve started to crave these caramel apples! Luckily they’re easy to make, and only take 4 ingredients!
- Granny Smith Apples
- Caramel (I like this brand or this one)
- Ghirardelli White Chocolate Chips
- Cinnamon Sugar
Cook’s Note Copycat Disney Apple Pie Caramel Apples Recipe:
- Patience is key with these apples. You must allow the caramel to set on the dipped apples before dipping them into the white chocolate. Trust me, if you don’t wait then you’ll have a sticky mess on your hands, on the countertop… basically all over.
- These Caramel Apples will keep in an air-tight container, in the refrigerator, for up to 1 week.
- Bring apple(s) to room temperature before eating.
