Homemade Caramel Apple Pops

Ah…Caramel Apples…the tartness of an apple and the sweetness of caramel makes them perfect! Many years ago, when the boys were young, we discovered the Caramel Apple Pops that Tootsie Roll makes. Oh…that was a happy day in our house! A certain someone might have even snuck a few and hid them to enjoy later. Shh…don’t tell!

Last Spring I shared with you how to make Homemade Jolly Rancher Lollipops, they are fun and super easy. So when I spotted that wonderful bag of Caramel Apple Pops in the Halloween candy aisle a couple weeks ago, I knew I needed to whip up a batch. And I’m so glad I did, of course, my waistline doesn’t think so. But the boys were pretty excited too!

Wouldn’t these be fun for a Halloween Party? Or even a classroom treat. After the caramel is set, just slip them into a cellophane bag. And with just 2 easy ingredients, they are easy to make and inexpensive as well.

The only special piece of equipment that you really need in parchment paper. Or if you have a Silpat, that will work also. Wax paper and foil just don’t work, in my experience.

    Bit of a weird question but are the caramels you use hard? Caramel in the UK is soft, and Toffee is hard so I want to make sure I use the correct stuff. They look amazing!!! YUM.

      Hi Nicola, yes they hard pretty hard. They are made by Kraft, not sure if you have that brand. Any caramels you would use on apples will work.
      Thanks for stopping by!

    That is a FANtastic idea! :D

  4. Phyllis Belangai says:

    Silly question but when you lay out the candy do you lay it like 3 in a row touching then leave a space and 3 more. I am a visual person and I have to see. Lol.
    This is so cute and I really want to make some of these.

  5. Liz I LOVE these! I had a bit of an obsession on these pops as a teen. I think I need to revisit them (homemade of course!).

  6. Karen says:

    How far in advance can you make these? I’d like to have them for my wedding reception but I would hate to make them too far ahead of time.

    • Liz says:

      Hi Karen, if you keep them in airtight bags, I would think at least a couple weeks. If you have time, you might test it though. The ones I made didn’t last long around here.
      Congrats on your wedding!
