  • 1
    6 washed Granny Smith (Honeycrisp or Pink Lady Apples)
    Bring a small pot of water to a rolling boil. Briefly submerge each apple, then wipe dry with paper towel, to remove wax coating. Set aside. Remove the stem of each apple, and insert a craft stick in its place.

    1 Cup Honey
    1 Cup Heavy Cream
    1/2 Teaspoon Salt
    In a large, heavy bottomed pot, combine honey, cream, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Using a candy thermometer to read temperature, bring mixture to a boil, and then to a simmer. Stirring slowly and constantly, bring to a temperature of 265F, about 20-25 minutes. Remove from heat.

    1/2 Cup Peanuts (chopped and toasted)
    1/2 Cup Almonds (chopped and toasted)
    1/2 Cup Walnuts (chopped)
    1 Tablespoon Flakey Sea Salt
    Place a sheet of parchment or wax paper onto a baking sheet, and coat lightly nonstick spray. Carefully twirl each apple in the caramel mixture and set onto prepared sheet. On individual plates, place the peanuts, almonds, walnuts, and sea salt. After caramel has cooled slightly, about 10 minutes, fold the pooled coating on the bottom of the apple upward. Roll in desired toppings, and serve.
