It's fall and apples have just shown back up in our farmer's markets; they're crisp and fresh and awesomely sweet -- almost as sweet as candy. But they are not candy. And despite how great fall-fresh apples are when stewed, mashed or baked into pies, sometimes what we really want is actual candy. What's a person to do?
Enter the candy apple, the perfect union of good-for-you fall produce and sugar-filled candy.
We rounded up some of the most amazing candy apple recipes on the Internet to share with you today. From classic to completely insane and over-the-top, we've found candy apples that are dipped in caramel, chocolate, candy bits -- and sometimes even all three. So you can have your fall apples, and eat your candy too.
