5lb Peter’s™ Caramel Loaf(formerly Nestle)
Pliable, great for filling, for caramel apples, turtles, or pecan logs and much more!
We estimate about 2.33 oz. for each medium size apple. That’s approx. 6-7 apples per pound or 20-30 per 5 lb. loaf.
Make these every year for the holidays and use Peter’s™ Caramel. It’s very smooth, tastes awesome and is much easier than making a big batch of caramel. So, wash and dry your apples and let them sit at room temp, then dip. Let the caramel cool a little after melting it. and then just dip……I always make sure the caramel covers the top of the apple and around the stick. This may help with the sliding off. I like to use a good chocolate to cover them in, they taste so good when using a nice chocolate. I always refridgerate them, since you poke a stick into them that will speed up the spoilage factor so refridgerating helps with that. I do serve them at room temperature though that is when they taste the best. I have seen them left out in stores ect and did try this to see how long it would last and about 4-6 days is the longest I would leave it out. I have kept them in the fridge much longer.
Caramel Apple Basics:
