- Use granny smith or your favorite sour apple. Using a sour apple will give you a better contrast with the sweet caramel and less likely to brown quickly
- Wipe down apples for any wax coating or dirt.
- Dry apples and let sit until they are at room temperature. If apples are cold there is a possibility of caramel sliding off due to moisture.
- Take out stem and push a wooden skewer in the top.
- Heat up Burke’s Perfecto in microwave. Starting with 30 seconds, stir, 30 seconds, stir, 30 seconds, ready!
- Submerge the skewered apple into the hot caramel and spin until the apple is completely covered and excess removed.
- Place the dipped apples onto a greased surface, such as a sheet pan with pan grease.
*For a fun alternative….dip the apples into the caramel and then chopped roasted peanuts or almonds for a delicious treat. Or even drizzle chocolate over the caramel or both!
Ever wonder what it would taste like to have a sip of pure Hawaiian sea water? Well you have a chance to now at Burke Candy! Well kind of…. We have been slaving away on our beautiful White Chocolate Caramels with Black Hawaiian Sea Salt. I wanted to learn a little more about this salt that gives our caramels that perfect pop of color and unique finishing taste.
Black Hawaiian sea salt also known as black lava salt comes from a small, virtually uninhabited island in the chain of Hawaiian Islands called Molokai. Having nearly no industry on Molokai means very little contaminants seep into the ocean surrounding this island, leaving the sea water unpolluted. They harvest the sea salt through high tech solar evaporators that keep the salt crystals intact through the slow evaporation process. Electrolytes and naturally occurring minerals are kept within the salt crystals unlike most processes that deplete the salt of the nutrients. Black lava salt has the dramatic color because it is mixed with charcoal, believed to have antioxidant properties and digestive health benefits.
Come and enjoy our delicious and nutritious, White Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels!
Have A Safe & Happy 4th of July!
