Halloween is just around the corner, and it's the perfect time to conjure up some spine-tingling treats for your adult-friendly gathering. Imagine biting into a crisp apple coated in rich, gooey caramel with a citrusy twist and a dash of CBD to add a layer of relaxation to your festivities. Yes, you read it right! In this blog, we'll show you how to make CBD Caramel Apples using Turf Origins Citrus Spice Bitters – a delightful and unconventional treat for the grown-up ghouls and witches at your Halloween soirée.
- 6-8 fresh, crisp apples (pick your favorites)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 Droppers of Turf Origins Citrus Spice Bitters (Dose at your discretion)
- Wooden sticks or lollipop sticks
- Wax paper for setting
Step 1: Prepare Your Apples
Start by washing and drying your apples thoroughly. Insert wooden sticks into the stem end of each apple and place them on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. These will be the 'magic wands' to your Halloween enchantment.
Step 2: Create the Caramel Cauldron
In a medium saucepan, conjure up your caramel cauldron by combining granulated sugar, corn syrup, and water over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves and then allow the mixture to boil. Once it's bubbling, resist the temptation to stir and instead, give it a swirl now and then to ensure even cooking. Keep an eye on it, and when the temperature reaches 300°F (hard crack stage), it's time to proceed to the next spellbinding step.
Step 3: Add Cream and Citrus Spice Bitters
Remove your bubbling cauldron from the heat and add heavy cream, but be careful! The mixture will bubble and hiss as it engulfs the cream. Stir until the concoction is smooth and even. Now, introduce your secret potion - Turf Origins Citrus Spice Bitters, giving your caramel apples a delightful spooky twist!
Step 4: The Magical Dip
Hold each apple by its wooden wand and dip it into the enchanting caramel potion, tilting the cauldron as needed to coat the apple evenly. Let any excess caramel drip off, and return your bewitched apples to the wax paper, ready for the next incantation.
Step 5: The Chilling Spell
Allow your caramel-coated apples to cool and set. If you're in a hurry, you can speed up the process by placing them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
Step 6: Bewitching Decorations and Indulgence
Once the caramel has set, let your creativity flow. Decorate your CBD Caramel Apples with some dark chocolate drizzles, crushed nuts, or maybe even some hauntingly beautiful edible glitter. These chillingly good treats are ready for you and your fellow witches and warlocks to sink your teeth into.
With a hint of Turf Origins Citrus Spice Bitters and a dash of CBD, your Halloween celebrations will take on a magical twist this year. These CBD Caramel Apples are not just for the taste buds; they promise to add a touch of enchantment to your spooky soirée. So go ahead, try this spellbinding recipe, and enjoy a Halloween that's equal parts relaxation and deliciousness!
