How to make a baked apple w chocolate dessert

Baked Chocolate Caramel Apples are baked apples stuffed with caramel and topped with melted chocolate and cinnamon. An easy fall dessert!

I’ve been making caramel apples since my oldest was small, and like Cinnamon Apple Crisp, it’s one of our favorite fall desserts. When the kids were younger, they used to chew on the caramel a little bit, and after a few futile attempts to get a bite, I would slice the apples so that they could actually taste them.

Then, the Hubs and I would get the the leftovers. Of course, now that the kids are older, they all want their own apples, but even the older ones admit that it’s hard to finish the entire thing. And neither Hubby nor I want to eat the half-chewed leftovers!

Baked Caramel Apple Halves

Here’s what you need to make them:

  • Granny Smith apples
  • Wrapped caramel candies
  • Semi sweet chocolate morsels
  • Sea salt (optional)
  • Cinnamon (optional)

How to Make Baked Apples with Caramel in the Middle

First, you wash your apples. You can use your favorite apple here, but since Granny Smith apples are traditionally used to make caramel apples, that’s what we like to work with.

Next, you slice the apples down the center, and scoop out the middle with a melon baller or a round metal measuring spoon. Then, place the apple halves cut side up in a small baking dish.

Next, you place 1 or 2 caramels into the center of each apple half, and pop them into the oven to familycuisine.net little guy was helping me in the kitchen today, and even he was surprised at how easy this method is.

When the caramels were melted, I added some chocolate chips and a sprinkle of cinnamon. If you know me, you know I gotta add cinnamon!

And since I love the taste of salted caramel, I added some sea salt over the melting chocolate.

And because my kids love ice cream (and I love them), I topped it all off with vanilla ice cream and just a teeny little bit more caramel.

This is optional, and a lot of times, we just eat the baked caramel apples straight out of the oven! You can spread the chocolate over the caramel and slice the half apple into smaller pieces for easier eating if you want.
