So you can definitely tell that I’m super excited that it’s all about apple and pumpkin picking right now, and everything fall – right?

I actually visited Carluke Orchards near my parents’ home for the first time since forever and it brought back so many nostalgic memories of fun fall childhood activities. I don’t really think you start appreciating that stuff again until you get older – just the simple experience of enjoying the bounty surrounding us and indulging in local produce.

It’s the best.

While I am getting outside and exploring more, especially now that I’m permanently finished school, I’m realizing that in a way I’m also starting to go into hibernation mode and this involves eating literally everything in sight.

In fact, I consider myself such a piggy guts these days that cooking and eating even on my days off is now fun to me.

Consider the wild Friendsgiving I had this past weekend – we had a girls’ night in with some mulled apple cider sangria while we made up some waffles made of stuffing, topped with roasted turkey, gravy, cranberries and all the fixings, plus a side of some creamy potato stacks and some of my cheesy brussels sprouts and kale dip.

Needless to say we stuffed our faces – just the way these stuffed caramel apples are filled to the brim with all kinds of insanity.

And this is just the start of all the possible combinations and toppings you could have.

Maybe you could make a party out of these and these alone? Probably.

I know the dulce de leche may seem high maintenance and like it takes a long time, but it is so worth it compared to store bought caramel. And honestly, all you really have to do is boil a can of sweetened condensed milk in water for a couple hours.

Dulce de leche is so good I could eat it by the spoonful.

And when I say could, I probably already have.

I’ve also dipped pretzels in it, and sprinkled my spoonfuls with toffee bits and shredded coconut for good measure.

I could go on and on about how good these are, but I’m starting to think that you can see (and maybe taste?) all the deliciousness in the photos here.

Just promise me you won’t lick your screen please. LOL

Instructions
  1. If you didn't buy storebought dulce de leche, submerge a can of sweetened condensed milk in a large pot of water with the label removed, and keep on a slow boil for 3 hours, filling up pot with water every half hour or so as necessary. Let can cool for at least 30 min before opening and using.
  2. Cut apples in half and cut out the core. Add dulce de leche and drizzle with melted chocolate, then top with your favourite toppings. My favourite combo is caramel and shredded coconut!

    Looks lovely but can you make them ahead of time? Any tips on keeping the apple from going brown other than lemon juice as this would interfere with your flavours?

      Hi Lynette! The lemon juice actually doesn’t really interfere with the flavours if you are making these ahead of time. I find the acid soaks into the apple and prevents it from browning, and it blends with the apple’s own acidity. Of course you will taste the lemon juice if you eat them right away, but if they sit for a few hours the taste isn’t really noticeable and it’s a natural preservative. Be sure to keep them in the fridge as well, that also helps!
