Before I begin with this Cook-i-licous treat, I want to give a huge thanks to Goodie Girl Cookies for sending a goodie girl swag bag full of tasty cookie flavors. It has been so fun testing different recipes. The Caramel Apple cookies has to be my favorite thus far. I looked at the box and thought…”Why not just make caramel apples rolled in the cookie crumbs??” And I did just that. I hope you enjoy the recipe.
Makes up to 12
Time: 5-6 hrs
Granny Smith Apples
2 (14oz) cans of sweetened condensed milk
Wood Dowel Sticks (Can use Popsicle Sticks or Wood Skewers)
Parchment Paper (Baking pan size sheet)
Peel the paper wrapper from the cans of sweetened condensed milk. In a deep boiling pot, place the cans at the bottom and add warm water. Ensure to cover the can with water. Set to a boil for 3hrs. You will have to add water when the water line goes below the top of the can. Turn off stove, remove cans from pot and set aside on a towel to cool (up to 1hr). Remove can lids, add the caramel to a bowl, and set aside. This process is called Caramel in a can.
Rinse boiling pot, add warm water, and apples (Stems removed). After 2-3 mins, remove apples and dry clean with a paper towel. Once the apples are dry, add the wood dowels and set aside.
Roll out and cut a sheet of parchment paper and rub butter all over it. This is help the caramel apples not to stick.
Crush the Caramel Apple Cookies (as much of the box you desire) and place in a bowl.
Take each apple and roll into the caramel covering almost to the top. Scrape the bottom with a mini spatula to remove the access caramel sauce. Roll or sprinkle the cookie crumbs over the caramel apple. Set each apple onto the parchment paper.
Refrigerate for 15-30 mins to allow the apples to set and become firm.
