How to make it

  • For the apples:
  • ---------------------
  • Wash the apples under hot water to get off any wax coating, then dry thoroughly.
  • Starting on the bottom, core the apples with the smaller scoop of a melon baller.
  • Reserve the bottom “plugs” of the apples.
  • Continue coring up to the top inch of the apples (you just want all the seeds removed).
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
  • Stuff the apples with about 2 tablespoons of the ganache, then close with the reserved apple plugs to seal.
  • Push the sticks through the stem ends of the apples, and set the apples on the baking sheet.
  • ------------
  • For the coating:
  • ------------
  • Place the pretzels in a shallow dish; set aside.
  • Prepare an ice water bath by filling a bowl halfway with ice and water.
  • Combine remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Cook until mixture registers 250°F on a candy thermometer, about 10 minutes.
  • Immediately dip the bottom of the saucepan in the ice water bath and let it chill until the bubbles have subsided, about 1 minute.
  • Stir until stiff caramel from the bottom is incorporated into the warm caramel on top.
  • Remove from the water bath.
  • Dip apples one at a time into the caramel, rotating once to coat 3/4 of the way up the sides.
  • Lift each apple straight up from the caramel, letting the excess drip back into the pot until the drips have slowed, about 10 to 15 seconds.
  • Roll the apple in the pretzels, and hold upright for 10 to 15 seconds. Place on the prepared baking sheet and repeat with the remaining apples. (If the caramel gets too hard to coat the apples well, set the pan over low heat and rewarm, stirring constantly, until the caramel is loose and pourable.)
  • Refrigerate the apples until set, at least 10 minutes.
  • The apples can be made and stored in the refrigerator up to 1 day in advance.
