J.PattonDuring the month of October, it almost seems like we’re swimming in a sea of calorie-loaded candy. Sweets like Butterfingers, Snickers and Kit-Kat Bars line the store shelves in preparation for every kid’s favorite holiday

With all of this temptation hitting us from all sides, it’s nice to know we can make a mouth-watering snack that is somewhat healthy: the caramel apple.

In addition to getting the luscious flavor of the caramel, you also get a number of health benefits from the apple. The phytonutrients in apples have been shown to regulate blood sugar. Apples are a great source of fiber, and the fruit can also help you feel fuller longer.  

Another great thing about this recipe is it contains no white sugar and no corn syrup, so you can feel confident about what ingredients are going into these delicious desserts. So, without further ado, I give you the caramel apple.
