Crazy Caramel Apples

At this year's Postcard Show at The Lab  - they are also organizing a Mini Market, showcasing small snacks and goodies by local bakers and cooks. They invited me to participate, soI've been trying to think of something seasonal, small, and also keeps well without refrigeration, since the event runs for two days. I did want to do small pies, but they just don't keep too well - especially ones w/ custard, like my pecan buttermilk pie. So - after coming across some recipes on for Marzipan Caramel Apples w/ Sesame and Almonds  - I decided that
baby caramel apples would do nicely!

Their recipe calls for cutting out the apple core and filling it w/ caramel - a pretty genius idea!
I'm not sure if I will do that for my apples, but we will see...since, I think that I've made caramel apples maybe once in my life.  The Chocolate Caramel Apple with Pretzels also looks might good:

I think I need to do a test run of these babies this weekend - with some different combo of nuts and definitely some chocolate.  Stay tuned!!!
