Easy Caramel Apples with Pecans
These Easy Caramel Apples with Pecans are almost more fun to make than they are even to eat. Of course, that could not be possible, but it is such fun to make candy apples—or, as in this case, caramel ones. This is also a fun project to do with the kids. You can prepare the caramel and the nuts, but once those ingredients are prepared, let the kids have at it. They will entirely love and enjoy dipping the apples in the caramel and rolling them in the pecans. And overall, this dish is loaded with goodness, so you do not have to feel too guilty about feeding these to the kids.
Pecans are a big part of this recipe, and nuts are very good food to eat and should be a regular part of our daily food plan. Generally, people who eat nuts as part of their food plan eat more magnesium, calcium, fiber and other nutrients that are important to our good health. They also provide plenty of good fats, and are a great source of nutrition for kids. Pecans also have great flavor and offer a tender bite and slightly sweet taste that complements the apple and caramel nicely. Apples are the biggest part of this recipe, forming the heart of the candy. And apples are chock full of vitamins and minerals. As well, apples, like nuts, can help slow the absorption of sugar. Apples are thought to play a big role in maintaining steady blood sugar levels, so eating apples dipped in caramel and then rolled in pecans might be a great snacking choice for the kids.
These treats are easy to make and the kids will have a blast if you allow them to make them with you. So get the kids and plan an afternoon of apple dipping and rolling. Enjoy this treat soon.
