Cooking Light OCTOBER 2012

  • Yield: Serves 12 (serving size: 1 apple)
  • Hands-on: 32 Minutes
  • Total: 1 Hour

Ingredients

  • 12 small Honeycrisp or other firm red apples
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped

Preparation

1. Rinse apples; dry well to remove waxy residue. Insert a craft stick into stem end of each apple. Place pecans in a shallow dish.

2. Combine sugars and the next 4 ingredients (through butter) in a small, heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring just until sugar dissolves, and bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reaches 325° or until syrup begins to caramelize. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and salt.

3. Working quickly with 1 apple at a time and holding apple by its stick, dip in caramel mixture, tilting pan and turning apple to mostly coat apple; allow excess to drip off. Quickly dip apple in pecans. Place apple, stick side up, on a cooling rack; let stand until set. Place chocolate in a microwave-safe dish; microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until melted, stirring every 20 seconds until smooth. Drizzle chocolate over apples. Let stand until set.
