Recipe

  • Line tray with baking paper and set aside.
  • Cube apples and squeeze with lemon juice to prevent browning and then top with toothpicks. Set aside.
  • For caramel, combine raw sugar and coconut milk in a heavy sauce pan over medium heat.
  •  Begin dipping each apple into caramel sauce right away. You can do this by transferring the sauce into a separate dish, or directly from the sauce pan, just be careful not to burn yourself. 
  •  Sprinkle each dipped apple with chopped pecans and place on baking paper to cool. 
  • Stir until sugar is dissolved and then allow to boil for 15 minutes until a the caramel is an amber brown.
  • Quickly remove from heat and gently stir in salt, vanilla bean seeds and coconut oil.
