Prep time
Total time
Date Caramel candy apples to make your taste buds sing, and your waist line happy! A great festive way to ring in 2019 and ease out of the totally indulgent experience of the holidays.
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack
Serves: 3
  • 15 dates, pitted and soaked 10 minutes in warm water, then strained
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  • about a ¼ or a bit more of coconut milk (add a bit at a time, just enough for the caramel consistency)
  • 3 apples
  1. Blend dates, vanilla, salt and water in a mini food processor or small blender until a smooth paste forms.
  2. Stick a wooden skewer into the bottom of a couple apples (I like honey crisp!).
  3. With a spatula, spread the date caramel evenly over each whole apple.
  4. Roll it in your choice of toppings! I used Nooch Pop sweet + savoury popcorn + coconut ribbons for one, and vegan chocolate chips for the other).
  5. Place in fridge for at least 30 minutes to let firm up slightly (it will still be gooey delicious).
  6. Enjoy!
