We might not be ready for fall – just a few more days of summer, please! – but there are some things to look forward to, especially on the culinary front. Our favorite: caramel apples! They’re so sweetly delicious, but they can be a little rough on our teeth. If you’re looking for a way to enjoy the combination of apples and caramel but want something a little more low-key and gentle, then Modern Mom is here to help. Check out their easy, inside-out version!

You’ll Need

– 1 bag of caramels
– 4 Granny Smith Apples

Deliciously simple! Modern Mom got this idea from contributor Jessie Jane of Lilyshop, so head on over to her site for the original recipe, including directions on how to melt the caramels. What do you think of this stripped-down version of caramel apples? Do you hurt your teeth on the original, or would you never give up the classic version for anything?
