What apples are best for caramel apples?

The best apples for caramel apples are the ones that are sweet and crisp. Gala, Honeycrisp, or Granny Smith are excellent choices. They have the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness, which blends perfectly with the sticky caramel sauce.

Make sure to choose apples that are firm and don’t have any bruises or soft spots.

Why does my caramel apple have bubbles?

If your caramel apple has bubbles, it means that there is moisture still on the apple.

Before dipping the apple into the caramel sauce, make sure to dry it thoroughly with a paper towel. 

If the apple is too cold, let it come to room temperature before dipping it in the sauce.

Make sure that the caramel sauce is also at the right temperature, if it’s too hot, it will create bubbles on the surface.

Do caramel apples need to be refrigerated?

Caramel apples generally do not need to be stored in the fridge, but they should be kept in a cool, dry place. The caramel coating on the apple helps to preserve the apple underneath, and refrigerating caramel apples can actually cause the caramel to become too hard and difficult to eat.

However, there are a few factors to consider:

Temperature: If you live in a very warm climate or it’s particularly hot outside, it’s a good idea to store caramel apples in the fridge for short-term storage to prevent the caramel from melting excessively.

Moisture: Moisture can cause the caramel to become sticky and less appealing. Make sure the caramel apples are properly wrapped to prevent moisture from getting to the caramel.

Toppings: If your caramel apples have additional toppings like nuts, chocolate, or other ingredients that can spoil or melt, you might want to consider refrigerating them to preserve the quality of these toppings.

Time: If you plan to store the caramel apples for an extended period, it’s a good idea to store them in a cool, dry place. The fridge might alter the texture and flavor of the caramel over time.

How do you get the wax off of apples?

Most apples have a thin coating of natural wax on their skin that helps protect them from damage and keeps them fresh. Before dipping the apples into the caramel sauce, you need to clean them thoroughly.

To get rid of the wax, you can wash the apples with warm water and a scrub brush or use a commercial fruit and vegetable wash. Once you clean the apples, rub them with a paper towel to dry them before dipping them in the caramel sauce.
