The great taste of caramel apples is easy with wedges. Add bacon to make Bacon Caramel Apple Wedges & you have the best caramel apple recipe ever
One thing I love about this wonderful season of fall is caramel apples. I used to not be such a caramel lover as I am now. However a good caramel apple is where my weakness was. When we lived near Virginia City we would go up on the weekends & walk the boardwalk & stop in the shops. One shop we always made a point to stop in was the fudge shop because they had these huge, over the top caramel apples. I always bought one & it took a fork, knife & 2 sittings to get through one. These days I’m looking to scale back on that a bit – as much as I would love to enjoy that every single day, I really can’t anymore. So I came up with a slightly lighter version of that with these Bacon Caramel Apple Wedges for our last post of bacon month.
You see – by cutting the apples into wedges it’s so much easier to share. Using a thin caramel sauce instead of coating a whole apple with thick & chewy caramel & all the other additions gives the flavor of a caramel apple with far less heaviness. Then I added bacon. Instead of chocolate or nuts or anything else – adding bacon gave the perfect amount of chewy & salty perfection to these. Oh my – simple & absolutely delicious. I love this snack.
