It makes no difference what you may call these apples, I've never been a fan of Caramel or Candy Apples until my daughter brought 3 of the most wonderful apples home from a sweet Cafe called Bouchons in Vegas.
My teeth always hated being stuck in the gooey chewy toppings put on the treats that always comes to the stores in the fall of each year. But these delights were spectacular. Really....... Gina brought out the cutting board and a large knife while the family gathered around the kitchen table and she cut a slice of each for all to taste. The gooey covered apples were so rich I don't think anyone could have eaten a whole one.
The candy shoppe in the Cafe gave their customers so many flavors to choose from. The one I loved the best was covered with a creamy caramel and fresh crunchy pecans. If only I could share the taste with you all.
If your a gourmet chocolate lover the one with the dark and white chocolate was a dream come true. But it only took two bites for me to be satisfied, it was that rich.
The family, 6 of us ate until we all said, enough! The three gourmet covered Candy Apples were gone! For me, it's a good thing the candy shoppe is much too far from Florida or I would be there regularly because I love dark chocolate and caramel, especially covered with pecans.
I think this may be a project for the Fall, making some of these wonderful caramel apples. I'm going to try to make fresh caramel and cover the sweet organic apples, then with the pecans. I read somewhere if you use evaporated milk the caramel will be smooth and not get hard and chewy? It will be fun to recreate.
If anyone knows of a good caramel recipe please leave me a comment and I'll give it a try.
I've been reading on many blogs Fall is in the air up north. Here in OKC it was still hot, 104' today. Send some of that air down here will ya!
Thanks to all.
