How to make these caramel apple smores
Start by breaking your cinnamon graham crackers into squares. Heat caramel topping in microwave for 30 seconds, or until warmed. Top each with 1 tablespoon of caramel topping (the kind for ice cream), and set aside. Next, you'll want to roast your marshmallows over a fire to your desired doneness. If you don't have a fire available, or want to make these super quick, you can also melt the marshmallow in the microwave. Just place the graham cracker squares on a microwave-safe plate, and top each with a marshmallow. Microwave for 10-15 seconds (keep a close eye on them!) until marshmallow starts to puff, then assemble the rest.
Add your cooked 'mallow to the graham cracker topped with caramel, and add a fresh apple slice. Top with the remaining graham cracker square, and enjoy!
- My favorite kind of apples to use for these are either granny smith, macintosh, or honeycrisp.
- If you're not having a campfire, you can also melt the marshmallows in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. See instructions above.
I don't have an open flame I can use. Is there any other way to make these s'mores?
Yes! See the tips in "How to make these caramel apple smores" for tips about how you can make these in the microwave instead.
Can these be made ahead of time?
I guess technically they can be, but I do not recommend it. The apples will start to brown, and can make the rest of the s'more mushy. I suggest only making them when you are ready to enjoy for best quality.
