I have to admit that for years the thought of trying to make homemade caramel apples at home sort of scared me. Fresh apples covered in gooey caramel seems easy enough, but it is the actual caramel making part of it that left me hesitant. I am sort of candy making challenged. ;) So when Urban Accents reached out to me to try their new Scary Salted Caramel Apple Kit, I was all for it. A kit that took most of the caramel apple making guesswork out of the equation? Yes, please! Sign me up.

It just so happens that I have a lot of apples from our apple picking adventure weekend before last that I need to put to tasty use soon, so I set to work right away whipping up these easy and delicious salted caramel apples. The kit includes the caramel mix, the wooden sticks, and sea salt for sprinkling. You just need to pick up a few ingredients from the grocery store to make these Scary Salted Caramel Apples happen in your kitchen...

If you don't own a candy thermometer, be sure to pick one up before beginning this little fall culinary project. Bringing the caramel to the required temperature is a must to ensure that the caramel turns out perfectly- not too runny and not too hard. I love this digital candy thermometer that I found on Amazon. :)
