Caramel Apples Without the Caramel

A few years ago we went on a family outing with some good friends to Maquoketa Caves State Park near Maquoketa, Iowa ( http://www.stateparks.com/maquoketa_caves.html ). After scrambling around the rocks, woods, and caves for a morning, we were famished. We all ended up sharing snacks.

Our friends offered us salted peanuts and apples and said, “Here, try eating both at once—it tastes just like a caramel apple!” So I put a few peanuts in my mouth and took a bite of apple and chewed them together. They did taste like a caramel apple! The salt/fat of the peanuts and the tart/sweetness of the apple are a wonderful combination and one I had never thought to try.

Perhaps you have already discovered this treat. If you are trying to give up sugar, or just want a healthier snack, this is a good alternative to the traditional caramel apple. Enjoy! Begonia
