Thank you to bride, Laura, for this lovely photo! She used our Petite Red Candy Caramel Apples with Crunch as part of the dessert display at her wedding this weekend, along with homemade pies and cream cheese mints and, of course, wedding cake. We love this idea and the rustic, fall colors in this display are absolutely gorgeous!!

Paper Caramel Apple Boxes

At Daffy Farms, we’re always on the lookout for fun new ways to package caramel apples and a little while ago, we found these adorable caramel apple boxes at Box & Wrap!

Cute Boxes 5 - Use

They come in three different patterns and range in price from about $0.60 to $1.20 depending on which design and the quantity ordered. They arrive flat.

And are incredibly easy to fold, as they are already glued in the right places.

They even come pre-punched with an ‘X’ in the top, for the caramel apple stick.

IDDBA 2015: Part 3

At the IDDBA’s Dairy-Deli-Bake Seminar and Expo at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia earlier this month, we went beyond caramel apples and created a dessert display to showcase all of the uses for our Daffy Farms All Natural Baker’s Caramel. We filled, drizzled, dipped, and topped a variety of bakery and confectionery items!

IDDBA 2015: Part 2

We found this fantastic round shelf that not only has an urban vibe, it reinforces the round idea of a caramel apple. This display, full of handmade gourmet caramel apples made with our Daffy Apple Traditional Dipping Caramel, Daffy Apple Red Candy Dipping Caramel, and Daffy Farms All Natural Dipping Caramel, turned out to be quite picture-worthy, judging from how many folks stopped to snap a photo of it!

Dipping Things (Other than Apples) in Caramel!

Sure Daffy Farms caramels are great for dipping apples, but did you know they make fantastic dipping caramels for other desserts? Our candy chef did some experimenting with several other items, so we could really see if our caramel held up to the test. It did! And with delicious looking, delicious tasting, results!

All 1

We dipped giant marshmallows in both our Traditional Caramel and our All Natural Baker’s Caramel. Both caramels held up well. Then we coated them with milk, white, and dark chocolate, as well as chocolate mini gems, pecans, and crispy cereal.

All Marshmallows 1

We dipped pretzel rods in both caramels, and topped them with milk, white, and dark chocolate, pecans, carnival sprinkles, sandwich cookies, and crispy cereal.

All Pretzels 1

We dipped potato chips in both caramels, and topped them with milk, white, and dark chocolate, and pecans. Our candy chef even made bride and groom chips, which are adorable!

We made pecan clusters using both caramels, dark chocolate, and sea salt.

And last, but definitely not least, we dipped sandwich cookies fully and partially in both caramels and topped them with milk, white, and dark chocolate, and pecans. Venturing into the cookie realm, made us realize that almost any cookie in the grocery store aisle would work well with this application and suddenly become a homemade candy-like treat!

Formal Favors & Lovely Lighting

Melanie Miller 2 - Smaller Version Melanie Miller 1 - Smaller VersionMelanie sent us these photos from her wedding last fall, with the kind message:

“We ordered 140 of your apples (peanut and crunch) as wedding favors for our guests. They all loved them. :)”

Well, we love these photos!! Soft lighting and the most gorgeous set of wedding rings perched on top of one of our Petite Caramel Apples with Crunch, absolutely beautiful!
