Recipe: Maple Walnut Caramel Apple

What says fall more than maple , walnuts, and caramel apples? (ok maybe pumpkins but today we are celebrating the apple, don’t worry pumpkin we will return to your regularly scheduled programming tomorrow). In keeping with our 25 Best Ideas for a Fall Family Bucket List, making Maple Walnut Caramel Apples is #14!

A yummy sweet Fall indulgence this apple is smothered in layers of sweet goodness. You can use any type of apple that you like, I prefer a good tart Granny Smith to offset the sweetness of all the toppings. This recipe is for just 6 apples but can easily be doubled, tripled, or even quadtrupled for a crowd!
