Caramel Apples

  • Makes 4 caramel apples

INGREDIENTS:

When I gave up processed and refined sweeteners I never thought I would be able to enjoy a caramel apple again, until I created this recipe. Even without caramel, they look just like the real thing and people of all ages love them!

Instructions:

Make Date Paste.

Place apple upside down on a flat surface and push stick into the center. Roll the apple in date paste, using your hands, if necessary, to get it to stick over the entire surface of the apple. Roll in your favorite topping such as nuts, cacao nibs, unsweetened defatted coconut or Goji berries or a combination. Chill well before serving.
