Chocolate Caramel Apple Pops

I am a huge caramel apple fan! I love to sink my teeth into a tart apple that is drenched in caramel, but oh they are messy, that is why I am so in love with these chocolate caramel apple pops! They are cute, perfect for little hands and mouths, and allow you to have the delicious caramel and chocolate flavor in every single bite!

One of my favorite things about these is that it is a project that you can get the kids in the kitchen helping with because the caramel apple pops don’t have to look perfect to still taste absolutely incredible, in fact, those ones probably will taste the best!

How to Make Chocolate Caramel Apple Pops

  • Begin by slicing the apple vertically to make 5-6 ¼” slices, avoiding the core of the apple. Pat dry between two paper towels. Make a small slit in the bottom of each apple slice,
cut a slit in the apple slice
  • and insert a small popsicle stick about ½” into the apple slice.

  • Melt the chocolate chips per directions on the package. (I melted them in the microwave, but you could also melt them on the stove top) Using a spoon or silicone spatula, spoon the chocolate over the apple slices, covering all sides and the edges.

  • Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, and put in the refrigerator to harden for approximately 10 minutes.

  • Once hardened, remove from the refrigerator. Melt the orange and white candy melts, and caramel bits according to the package instructions. Open a sandwich baggie, and drape over your hand. Fill each bag with the melted orange and white candy melts. Cut the tip of the baggie with some kitchen shears. Pipe different designs of the orange and white candy melts onto the chocolate covered apple pops.
drizzle chocolate designs
  • Next, drizzle the melted caramel on each pop, and then immediately add sprinkles. (I found it easiest to add the sprinkles to the caramel, as the orange and white candy melts harden too quickly, and it was hard to get the sprinkles to stick to them)
  • Let sit for a few minutes to allow the caramel to harden a bit, and then they are ready to enjoy!

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Be sure to dry your apple slices really well with a towel to get all the excess juice off of them to allow the chocolate and caramel to stick. 
  • When it comes to decorating your caramel apples you can be as creative as you would like to be. You can stick with just caramel and chocolate, add sea salt or add layers of color with melted chocolate. 
  • If your chocolate is too thick, add ½ teaspoon of vegetable oil to every cup of chocolate. This will help thin it out to melting consistency. 
  • Be sure you spoon the chocolate onto the apple. Doing this helps it to stick to the apples better than if you dipped them into the hot melted chocolate.

When you are ready to enjoy again, remove them from the fridge and let them come back to room temperature to enjoy. This will take about 5-10 minutes.

Can I make these ahead of time?

Yes! You can make these up to 2 days ahead of time. Once you prepare them, store them covered on a tray in the fridge. 

Please note: making them in advance can cause the caramel and chocolate to break off if you are not careful. So just use caution when making them ahead of time.
