I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of this recipe for Caramel Apple Slices on a Stick for #BacktoSchoolTreats week. All opinions are mine alone.
When my kids were little, I loved making them after-school snacks. It was something I always did for them.
I knew that by the time they come home, their lunches would have worn off and they would be hungry.
One of my favorites I started making for them was these Caramel Apple Slices on a Stick. They are super simple to make and taste just like a huge caramel apple, but easier to assemble and not as messy!
How to Make Caramel Apple Slices on a Stick
To start, simply slice your apples into about 1/2 inch thick. You want to make sure they are wide enough that your sticks will hold the apples up.
I got these fun sticks from Sweets & Treats Boutique.
Now, lay your apples out on a cutting board or plate. This is where the magic happens! You can literally layer them with anything. For these apples, I didn't want a thick caramel, so I chose to use Torani Caramel Sauce in the jar to drizzle them with.
I then topped them with my delicious homemade hot fudge sauce and some of the leftover granola I had made. We did one with nuts, then we topped another with Apple Cider Sprinkles from Sweets & Treats Boutique, and the last one, we topped with granola to give it like an apple crumble feel.
Now, give them to the kiddos to enjoy while they take a break and prepare for homework time. These apples are so delicious and the kids will feel like they are at the fair!

This is such a good idea- a whole caramel apple is too much for little ones and hard to eat frankly! This idea seems so much better and you get more of that caramel and toppings!
