Let’s say you need a fast, easy, and economical way to make 15 caramel apples for a birthday party or 500 caramel apples for the neighborhood block party. Daffy Farms has the perfect solution! Daffy Apple Caramel Apple Kits have been a top seller on our website since their introduction over a decade ago. They include everything but the apples – caramel, sticks, toppings, and instructions – and we’ll deliver them to your doorstep so you can dip and decorate Daffy Apple Caramel Apples at home!
While preparing for the IDDBA Dairy-Deli-Bake Seminar & Expo 2014, we made over 170 gourmet caramel apples in order to showcase our Daffy Apple Traditional Dipping Caramel. It was a fun experiment in which we learned which toppings work with both the flavor and the holding power of our caramel.
Cranberries are a topping we have used in the past and currently use on our Daffy Apple Premium Caramel Apples with Cranberries and White Chocolate with Milk Chocolate Drizzle. Granola, though, is an entirely new idea based on an suggestion from a customer. We used a very basic granola, but there are so many different mixtures that would taste excellent with apples and caramel. We also added a white chocolate drizzle to a few of the granola caramel apples to take the taste one level further.
Sprinkles are a classic topping choice. We have several color combinations available for order on our website, however for the show we did a few sports themed combos. We are located in Denver, Colorado – bet you can’t guess which teams we chose!
There are a number of sprinkle-like toppings out there, too. We only scratched the surface by including shaped decorettes and nonpareil pearls on this spring holiday themed caramel apple. Go to the cake decorating section of any craft store and you will find a whole new world of edible sugars, crystals, and even glitter!
The theme of the expo was camping and so we took our favorite campfire tradition, S’mores, and turned it into a caramel apple by using graham cracker cereal, mini marshmallows and a a milk chocolate drizzle. Most desserts, from pies to candies to pastries to frozen treats, could be translated into pieces and rolled onto a caramel apple.

This time last week we were right in the middle of the IDDBA Dairy-Deli-Bake Seminar and Expo 2014! Our goals for the show were to introduce our new products, Daffy Farms All Natural Baker’s Caramel and Daffy Farms All Natural Dipping Caramel, as well as to promote our classic recipes, Daffy Apple Traditional Dipping Caramel and Daffy Apple Red Candy Dipping Caramel to top grocery store bakeries, dessert manufacturers, and product distributors. The show was an overwhelming success and an invaluable experience, from the interest in our products to the industry connections to the distinguished guest speakers to the copious amounts of cheese samples! We also snapped a few photos along the way, so we could share our experience with you . . . .
Our latest press releases are out and starting to hit trade publications! Bakery Online published an article about our upcoming participation the IDDBA‘s Dairy-Deli-Bake Seminar & Expo. And Perishable News has us featured again, this time in an article that discusses our commercial caramel business.
Yes, both our Traditional Dipping Caramel and Red Candy Caramel must be heated to 180 degrees to become the right consistency to properly stick to apples. Our 20 ounce and 6.5 pound tubs are microwave safe, so they are super easy to heat up in the microwave. For further info on how to use our caramel apple dipping caramels, check out the Heating Instructions page on our website and our How to Make a Caramel Apple video on Youtube!
For Petite Caramel Apple orders, we suggest you place your order 3-4 weeks in advance, however if you wish to place an order earlier than that, you are more than welcome to do so. More information about when Petite Caramel Apples are available and when to order them for an event can be found on the Petite Caramel Apple Ordering Deadlines page on our website.
For Bulk Caramel orders, we suggest you place your order 2 weeks in advance. We usually need at least 5-7 business days to process and ship all orders. We make all of our caramel from scratch, though, so if we do not have it in stock, it may take a couple of extra days for us to make it, which is why we suggest orders be placed 2 weeks in advance.
For Caramel Apple Supply orders, we suggest you place your order 2 weeks in advance. We usually need at least 5-7 business days to process and ship all orders. We keep caramel apple sticks, cellophane bags, and all other toppings and supplies in stock, but by ordering 2 weeks in advance, you will be sure to have everything you need in time for your event!
OK, we know you’re on to us with the cupcake thing now. It’s true, though, many fantastic cupcake ideas can also be used for our Petite Caramel Apples! Today we introduce the cupcake box. This package contains 3 cupcake boxes for $2.99, or about a dollar a box.
These boxes take a little bit of modification, but they are the perfect size for Petite Caramel Apples. Though the window is suppose to be in the top, when used for a cupcake, we flipped the box over on its side and punched a hole in what is now the top to make room for a stick.
We then put a piece of parchment in the the new bottom of the box, to make our cupcake box food safe, and put a Petite Caramel Apple with Carnival Sprinkles inside. Since we’ve turned the box on it’s side, it isn’t quite as secure as usual, so it may not be a bad idea to stick it closed with a little piece of tape or a cute sticker or seal.
We offer several other options! Our Caramel Apple Kits are popular, super easy to use and include caramel, sticks, and topping. They come in all different sizes, so you can make 15 caramel apples or 500 caramel apples, or any number in between. We also sell Bulk Caramel and Caramel Apple Supplies separately, so you can mix and match caramels, toppings, stick sizes, and packaging. And, our Premium Caramel Apples ship all year long.
