Put A Little Spice In Your Apple


Everyday I come home from work and just want to fall on the couch and go to sleep.  Not today!  I was determined to create and be inspired. I had honey, I had spices, I had apples...with a little inspiration and push from my sweet toothed friends ...I am privileged to present to you CHAI HONEY CARAMEL APPLES!  Not to mention, my apartment smells fantastic!  Check out the September Rosh Hashana Honey Link-Up below!


Chai Honey Caramel Apples

1 C. Honey
1 C. Almond Milk
1/4 C. Earth Balance
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Scant 1/4 tsp. of each of these spices
Ground Nutmeg, Ground Black Pepper, Ground Cinnamon, Ground Allspice, Ground Ginger, Ground Cloves and Fennel Seeds
4 Apples
Pecans

Put all ingredients in sauce pan and wait till it reaches a boil.  Once it reaches a boil, pick up the pan from the heat (or it will boil over) and turn the stove down to low.  Using a candy thermometer, cook the honey and milk mixture till the temperature on the thermometer reaches 250 (about 20 minutes).  Take the pan off the stove and cool until the mixture has a caramel dipping texture (about 5 minutes).  Slice your apples into 8ths and dip.  Lay covered apples on parchment paper and sprinkle with chopped pecans. Place in fridge for caramel to set.
Start of the boil
220 degrees


250 degrees



HAPPY ROSH HASHANA!!

  5. The flavors in here sound amazing, I love chai. Does it really get a nice thick caramel texture? I find it hard when cooking parve.

    1. The spices made my house smell heavenly! It a great thick texture, but you have to wait a little for it to cool down before you dip. Then it will harden even more once you put it in the fridge. Enjoy :)
