Mini Caramel Apples


3­-4 large apples
4 Tbsp ghee
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 tsp Himalayan pink salt


Prepare a 9×13 pan by lining with parchment paper.

Prepare apples by cutting in half, then using a melon baller, make spheres. Alternatively, you can use the whole apples.

Set aside.

To make the sauce:

Melt ghee over low heat. Slowly add maple syrup and salt.

Bring to a low boil while stirring constantly for 4 minutes or until the mixture is thick enough to draw a line with the back of a spoon in the base of the pan.

Let caramel cool, off heat, and slightly thicken. Coat each apple with caramel and place on parchment. Repeat for a second round for thicker caramel coating.

Place the coated apples in the refrigerator until serving.
