Caramel Apple-y Ever After

Autumn is the time for crisp, cool breezes, falling leaves and cozy, comforting fall foods. What better way to embrace fall’s a-peel than with an ooey, gooey caramel apple? Whole caramel apples can be messy and tough to eat, so try using skewered fruit slices instead. Crafted with crisp apples, wrapped caramels and goodies from our Bulk Department, they’re a perfect dessert for parties, family outings or just a fun afternoon snack. Follow our easy instructions for a sweet harvest treat that’ll leave you satisfied to the core.

 

Caramel apple board with bowls of toppings

Step 1: Prep Your Apples

Slice each apple into bite-size pieces and skewer. Blot any moisture off with a paper towel or cloth. This will help the caramel stick to the apple slices.

Step 2: Make a Rolling Station

Caramel sets quickly, so you’ll want to have everything ready and laid out in advance. For easy cleanup, set up your apple decorating station with lined muffin tins filled with each ingredient. You’ll also need a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, so you have a place to set your finished apple slices.

Step 3: Prepare the Caramel

Take a shortcut from time-consuming homemade caramel by using wrapped caramel candies from our Bulk Department. You’ll need about 35-40 caramels, unwrapped, to make a batch of five apples. Place the caramels in a small saucepan with 2 Tbsp of milk or water and heat on medium until melted.

Step 4: Dip ‘Em and Decorate

Dip the apple in the caramel and use a knife to spread it over both sides of the apple slice. Sprinkle on your favorite toppings, rotating the skewer to get both sides of the slice. Set completed apple slices on the parchment paper to dry.
Tip: For an extra sweet touch, melt your favorite chocolate in the microwave and use a spoon to drizzle a chocolatey swirl atop your cooled, treat-covered apple.

    How to Cut Mangos

    Learn how to slice & dice juicy mangos!

    Become a mango pro with these simple tips and tricks to ensure you get every sweet, juicy bite from these tropical faves. While there are a variety of methods to cut a mango for your morning smoothie or a refreshing afternoon snack, we’ve broken it down into four easy-to-follow steps just for you!

    Choose mango-nificently!

    Before taking this mango-chopping crash course, let’s learn how to pick ’em! A mango is ripe and ready to be enjoyed when it has a light, fragrant aroma and gives to gentle pressure when squeezed. Depending on the variety, a mango’s color doesn’t always determine ripeness! The best way to know when it’s ready to enjoy is by the firmness and sweet aroma.

    Step 1:

    Mangoes have an oblong seed running through the center that’s about 1/4-inch in width. Make your first slices alongside the center seed, creating two halves.

    Step 2:

    Gently make vertical slices in each half, being careful not to pierce the skin on the other side.
    Mango slicing step 2

    Step 3:

    Once both halves have vertical slices, cut the flesh in a grid-like pattern, making small squares without slicing through the skin on the other side.
    Mango slicing step 3

    Step 4:

    At this point, you can use a spoon to gently scoop between the flesh and the skin to pop out the cubes or you can use your hands to push the skin from underneath the flesh, creating a hedgehog-like effect. If your mango is ripe enough, you may be able to salvage a bit from the seed. Use a small paring knife alongside the seed and the skin to remove a little more goodness!
    Cut mangoes step 4

    How to store mangos:

    Once you have sliced or diced your mangos, you can use them right away or store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about five days. They also freeze extremely well and make a delicious addition to smoothies or can be used as ice cubes in your favorite mocktail! To freeze: Be sure to spread your mango chunks on a baking sheet or cutting board to flash freeze before placing them into a freezer bag or container to prevent them from sticking together. Once they are hard enough, transfer them to your container of choice and freeze for up to six months.

    It’s citrus season!

    Winter days become a little sweeter when you peel open a bright, juicy citrus that fills the room with a refreshing scent. With over 20 different citrus varieties, like super sweet Sumo Citrus Mandarins, fragrant Meyer Lemons and snackable Kumquats, you’re sure to find your zest one yet!

    SHOP FRESH CITRUS


    Celebrate Citrus

    Sumo Citrus®

    With a rich history dating back to 1970s Japan, these oversized mandarins were bred to combine the easy-to-peel, Japanese Satsuma with the sweet, juicy California orange. Sumo Citrus® have a bumpy, loose peel and sport a topknot with a perfectly balanced, sweet citrus flavor.

    Tangelos

    This delightful variety is best enjoyed when freshly peeled and eaten out-of-hand as a zesty snack. They have sweet-tart flesh with an extra juicy bite. Choose ones that are heavy without any blemishes for a perfect pick.

    Cara Cara Navel Oranges

    These oranges—a special varietal of navels—are very low in acid, so their sweet, slightly complex berry-like flavor really comes through. They are typically bright and glossy, with a surprising slight rosy hue to the flesh. Cara Caras oranges were first discovered in the tropics of South America in 1976.

    Raspberry Orange

    The Raspberry Orange is the most colorful of all the blood oranges with deep red flesh. Their distinct flavor is slightly sweet with a subtle hint of raspberry.

    Pink Lemons

    These unique lemons are easily identifiable by their rind, which has green and off-white stripes. Once they’re cut open, their flesh is beautifully pink with a wonderfully fragrant flavor.

    Mandarins

    This tiny-but-mighty fruit is naturally seedless and easy to peel. The sweet, juicy flesh is packed with antioxidants, vitamin C and fiber. Use the small pieces atop a fresh salad for a pop of color and flavor.

    Meyer Lemons

    A delicious cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange, this citrus variety has a light, floral flavor with a pleasantly sweet-sour bite. Meyer lemons are ideal for baking and adding freshness to a variety of recipes.

    Kumquats

    Bursting with tart, vibrant flavor, this bite-sized citrus fruit has a thin, edible rind making them perfect for an on-the-go treat that’s packed with nutrients.

    Vintage Navels

    These oranges are grown from heirloom navel oranges, but that is where the similarity to the navel oranges ends. Their higher sugar levels lend to a luscious aroma and the ultimate, perfect orange sweetness.

    Valencia Oranges

    These medium-sized oranges provide a great amount of sweet-tart juice making them perfect when creating an at-home marinade or dressing!
