DIY Caramel Apple Favors
If you have time, a few helpers, and a little patience, you can make incredible DIY caramel apple favors thanks to this brilliant tutorial from Evermine. Check out their DIY project here. You could make them however you’d like: dip apples in white chocolate (as shown in the image below), in dark chocolate or milk chocolate, sprinkles, etc. To melt the chocolate, you can use a double boiler process or make it super easy with one of these and lots of extra melting chocolate. You use popsicle sticks like these to make it easy to hold. If you’re making caramel apples, use these wraps on your apples. It’s easy! I also like the favor tags you can make from their site that say, “Apple-y Married“. Cute play on words! My choice apple: sprinkles. Always sprinkles!
If you do make your own apple favors, we love these green leaf tags you can attach (from Jen Aitchinson). These are no longer available, so we found these as an alternate.
Or make custom tags from here as another option.
