It’s Still Halloween, Right?

November 3, 2008

Better late than never.  I thought I would have time to post these earlier, but didn’t.  I made caramel apples for my friends/family this year.  I used this recipe, from CHOW, but subbed in Earth Balance for the butter, French Silk Soy Creamer for the heavy cream, & brown rice syrup for the corn syrup.  They turned out great!  I rolled them in different things, combinations of pecans, peanuts, & chocolate chips.

And here are my friends’ jack-o-lanterns.  Matt’s alien invaders are on the top & Ethan’s creepy hacked-up face is on the bottom.  Mine was mysteriously not documented.  Darn.

    Mmm, caramel apples are awesome! Wish I could have made some this year, but I missed Halloween altogether. But hey, they would still be a great Thanksgiving treat, right? 🙂

    The caramel apple looks delicious, especially rolled in nuts and chocolate! I love the jack-o-lantern with the hands.

    Oooh those look so good! I haven’t eaten those since I was vegan and now I think I must try this recipe. Looks delish!

    oh dang. that caramel apple looks so exquisite. All you caramel apple-making people are seriously amazing. I wish someone would just make me one… so that I wouldn’t have to make it and see how many naughty ingredients go into the final product!

    That apple looks so gooey. I’m totally sugared out at the moment but I had to say that your cupcakes and sugar cookies in the last post are so pretty.

    I am so impressed that you made vegan caramel apples! They look lovely. I think that I will be making these soon for absolutely no reason whatsoever … just because they look delicious.

    Lovely – I remember my mum making these on bonfire night when I was reaaaally young. It might be time to revisit them as a vegan!
