This past weekend, we had a fall party with lots of friends and family.  I wanted to have a simple, yet, custom sweets area.  I decided to construct a DIY Caramel Apple Bar.  I had accumulated tons of yummy apples from my Fall CSA and this would be the perfect time to use them.

I purchased two bags of Kraft caramel bits and a super small food warmer (images link to the products on amazon!):



I then rummaged through my cabinets and found everything else that I needed.  That included kaboob sticks for poking the apples and toppings to sprinkle on the caramel after dipping.  I chose crushed peanuts, mini chocolate chips, sprinkles, almond slivers, toffee bits, and coconut flakes.  The possibilities for topping options are practically endless.

Check out the rest of my set up below!  YUMMMYYYY!

My only complaint is that after letting the caramel in the warmer for a few hours, it began to taste a bit burnt.  I would suggest not melting and warming the caramel until the dessert portion of your party.
