If candy apples were chips, they'd probably taste like this!  

As prepared by BS in the Kitchen

I don't know about you guys, but I'm running out of space trying to store all the apples people keep giving me! It's a blessing and a curse.

Up until now, I was having a heck of a time trying to figure out different ways to use the apples, but today that's all going to change...

Behold the miracle that is Apple Chips! Seriously. Why have I never made these before? They are freakin' delicious! Of course, why would you want to be all health conscious and low-cal with plain old apple chips when you could have Salted Caramel Apple Chips Spoil yourself and dip those babies in caramel, sprinkle on a little salt and you are on your way to some seriously addictive and delicious snacking!

I've experimented with a few different ways of cooking them and found it's best to cook them on parchment paper so they don't stick to your pan and you don't have to flip them. They also cook really well on a pizza stone, not to mention a lot quicker (about an hour versus two).

Preheat your oven to 225°F. Slice your apples really thin with a mandoline or a sharp knife. The key to baking the perfect apple chip is making sure each slice is roughly the same thickness, allowing them to bake evenly.


Here we go!

For easy caramel dip, take store bought caramel squares, unwrap them and place in a microwave safe bowl. On 50% power, heat the caramels for about 30 seconds at a time, watching and repeating until the caramels melt. You could also melt them in a pan, by adding about a tablespoon of butter on low-medium heat, then adding your caramel squares and heating until melted! Of course, if you are super ambitious, you can make that caramel right from scratch!

Next, dip one side of the apple slice into the melted caramel, lightly coating it and placing the non-caramel dipped side on the parchment paper. It's necessary to only dip one side otherwise the apple won't crisp up if you dip both sides. And trust me, you want crispy chips!

Once you have placed all your dipped apples on the parchment paper, place in the oven and bake for about 2 hours total. The time will vary depending on your oven, as well as the thickness of your apple chips, so make sure to check them after about an hour and see how they are doing. Once they start to brown, you can take them out, sprinkle with salt and allow them to cool until they become crispy!

That's it! Super simple, and very very addictive.

How to Make Salted Caramel Apple Chips

Ingredients

salt
parchment
paper
8-10
small apples
1/4
cup caramel dip or squares

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 225°F
  • 2 Thinly slice apple.
  • 3 Melt caramel in microwave on 50% power, 30 seconds at a time until melted. Alternatively, you could melt caramel in a pan on low-medium heat. Add a tablespoon of butter, adding caramel once the butter has melted, and cooking until caramel melts.
  • 4 Dip half of one side of the apple slice into the caramel. Do not dip both sides into the caramel, as that will prevent it from becoming crispy.
  • 5 Place non-caramel dipped side on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • 6 Bake in oven for about 2 hours.
  • 7 After 1 hour of baking, check on your apple slices. Remove once the apples begin to brown.
  • 8 After taking out of the oven, sprinkle salt over the chips, allow to cool (they will become more crisp as they cool), then enjoy!
