I’m taking a break from the “pumpkin flavored everything” madness that is October to bring you something different. But fear not, pumpkin fans, I’ll be back in a few days with another recipe starring everyone’s favorite rotund orange squash. For the time being, feast your eyes on the yummy gorgeousness of these Salted Caramel Apple Chips!
Baked apple chips are a great healthy snack, but why not let yourself splurge a little and add a bit of salted caramel to the mix? This would be great to set out as an after school snack- and score some serious cool points with the kiddos! Or tuck small portions into treat bags tied with pretty baker’s twine to hand out to friends and co-workers….again, racking up the cool points all over the place.
1/4 cup homemade or store bought caramel sauce 1-2 tsp Maldon sea salt
Instructions 1. Heat oven to 225 degrees. 2. Slice apples 1/8 of an inch in thickness using a mandolin slicer and place in a single layer on parchment lined baking sheets. 3. Gently warm caramel in a heatproof bowl in 10 second intervals until softened. 4. Using a pastry brush, brush caramel over the top of one half of each apple slice. 5. Bake in the oven for approximately 2 hours, checking after 1 hour and removing when apple slices begin to brown. Apple slices will begin to crisp up as they cool. 6. Sprinkle lightly with salt before serving.
