Spiderweb Apples

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Apples are dipped in caramel, rolled in pretzel crumbs, then a spiderweb design is piped on with chocolate and vanilla frosting.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • WASH and dry apples. Remove stems, and insert wooden craft sticks into stem ends of apples. Set aside.
  • COOK caramels and 1/3 cup water in a large saucepan over low to medium heat until smooth, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  • DIP apples into hot caramel, spooning caramel mixture over apples to coat completely. Scrape excess caramel from bottom of each apple; roll coated apples in crushed pretzels, and place on greased wax paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes or until caramel is set.
  • SPOON chocolate frosting into a small heavy-duty, zip-top plastic bag; seal bag. Submerge bag in a small saucepan of hot water until frosting is thin enough to pipe.
  • SNIP a tiny hole in 1 corner of bag, using scissors. Drizzle warm chocolate in a webbed design over each apple. Repeat heating and drizzling procedure with vanilla frosting.
  • CHILL apples until firm. Wrap apples in cellophane wrap, and tie with heavy string.
