Reynolds Kitchens® Tips

Reynolds Kitchens tip

Cool your dipped apples on a sheet of Reynolds®Parchment Paper. They won’t stick and cleanup is easy as pie. And to share your treats, wrap individual apples in squares of parchment paper and tie with a bow.


  • 4 to 6 small red apples
  • 4 to 6 wooden popsicle sticks
  • Light brown sugar
  • 1 bag (about 11 ounces) caramel candies, unwrapped
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • Various toppings such as chopped nuts, mini chocolate candies and morsels, or sprinkles
  • Reynolds® Parchment Paper


Step 1

Wash and dry apples. Insert a popsicle stick into end of each apple.

Step 2

Line a large tray with Reynolds® Parchment Paper. Sprinkle parchment paper with brown sugar.

Step 3

Combine caramel candies, milk, vanilla extracct and allspice in a medium size microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir ingredients until evenly mixed.

Step 4

Dip and roll apples in caramel mixture to coat. Roll apple in topping, if desired.

Step 5

Stand apple on brown sugar-sprinkled parchment paper. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

Recipe Tip

The brown sugar adds extra sweetness and crunch to the caramel apples and prevents the gooey caramel from sticking as it hardens.
