Apples and peanut butter are a classic combination. Surprise your friends this fall with this crispy peanut butter cookie coated caramel apple creation.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 Granny Smith apples
  • 6 wooden sticks
  • 1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups chopped peanut butter filled sandwich cookies
  • 4 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
  • 4 ounces white chocolate, chopped

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Insert wooden sticks 3/4 of the way into the stem end of each apple. Place apples on a cookie sheet covered with lightly greased aluminum foil.
  2. 2 Combine caramels and water in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring often, until caramel melts and is smooth. Stir in the vanilla. Dip each apple into the caramel and gently run apples around insides of saucepan to scrape off some of the caramel. Scrape excess caramel from the apple bottoms using the side of the saucepan.
  3. 3 Spread the chopped cookies out on a dinner plate. Roll caramel apples in the cookies and place on the aluminum foil. Place the milk chocolate and white chocolate into separate microwave-safe bowls. Heat in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Drizzle milk chocolate over the apples, then drizzle the white chocolate over the milk chocolate. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  4. 4stars....figured it out towards end i just figured out that candy apple making isnt for me. however the recipe is a good one.
  5. These were very easy to make and tasted great. They do need to stay refrigerated or the caramel gets droopy. I used Pepridge Farms brussles cookies instead and they tasted GREAT!
  6. we made this for a pile of teenagers. Instead of doing the apples whole however we cored and sliced the apples and then drizzled the caramel and chocolate on them then added the rest of the ingredients. Was a MAJOR hit for all ages!
  7. In the end you get a delicious treat. However the picture is very misleading. The only way you can posible make yours look like the picture is if you make sure and have the cookies ready before you melt the carmel and then work extreamly fast. Otherwise the carmel sets up and the cookies don't - Read more ...
