We received these photos from Rebekah along with her comment:

“Daffy Apples were so beautiful and perfect for our October wedding. All our guests commented on how delicious they were although I was unable to even taste one as they were snatched up so fast!  Thank you so much. They were a great and high quality party favor.”

Look at these beautiful tables featuring the gorgeous, rich colors of fall!  We are delighted Rebekah chose our petite caramel apples as her wedding favors!

DIY: Burlap, Lace & Jute

Rustic – romantic – traditional – Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples may be the perfect fall favor!  And there is nothing better than a touch of burlap, lace, or jute to fit the theme.

We started with a Petite Caramel Apple with Crunch, a Clear Cellophane Bag, and piece of burlap.  Our burlap came in a bundle for $2.99 and we were able to cut approximately 10 pieces from the bundle, which comes out to around 30 cents per piece of burlap.

We simply tied the burlap around the stick and trimmed the ends a bit.

Lace also adds a fantastic classic, vintage vibe.  We set out looking for something more, lace-y, and ended up with this beautiful roll of crocheted white cotton.

We cut a piece and tied it on.  That’s it!  This roll of crocheted lace had 9 feet on it for $2.99.  Depending on how long you wish for the tails on the ribbon to be once tied, we found we could cut anywhere from 10 to 15 pieces at a price of 30 cents to 20 cents per piece.

Now jute!  Jute very quickly became the most popular idea for this post and it is by far the most economical.  We purchased a roll of 243 feet of natural brown jute for $2.99 and used nowhere near a foot to tie the bow in the photo below.  It would be very easy to cut 250 pieces from the roll, at a cost of only a couple of cents per jute bow.

Q&A Tuesday: Do you make Daffy Apple Petite Caramels Apples without nuts?

Absolutely! We offer crunch, which does not include nuts, and sprinkle toppings. All of our topping options can be viewed here. Though we follow strict allergen guidelines when processing Petite Caramel Apples, please be aware that all Daffy Farms and Daffy Apple products are produced in a facility that also handles peanuts and tree nuts.

DIY: Apples and Caramel and Leaves, Oh my!

Close your eyes and picture an apple.  What do you see?  Bright red or green skin, a brown stem, a crisp little leaf?  That’s what we see too!  So, we traveled down to our local craft store with the traditional image of an apple in mind to serve as inspiration for DIY decorating our Petite Caramel Apples.

We found these bunches of leaves in the floral department.

Use-1

The green leaves were $1.99 for 24, or around 9 cents each.  The white iridescent leaves were $1.99 for 11, but we think we might have had an extra in our bundle, we are assuming there were suppose to be 10, which means they were around 20 cents each.  The stem of each leaf is made of wire, so it is super easy to use and works well in keeping our clear cellophane bags closed.

We’re partial to our Petite Red Candy Caramel Apples with Crunch with the green leaves attached, but the white iridescent leaves do add some nice sparkle!

We also came across burlap leaves.  Burlap has a fantastic rustic fall feel to it and it is everywhere right now! These leaves were all attached to the same branch, 7 in total, for $1.99, or around 29 cents each.  What we discovered while working with them, though, is that they can easily be detached and used like the other leaves with metal bendy stems.

How cute would a whole table full of these be at a wedding reception?  Or maybe one at each place setting?

Use-7

We also picked up a coral colored burlap flower.  These burlap flowers come in many different colors, so they could coordinate with a number of theme color combos.  At $1.99 each, the addition of the flower may become a bit extravagant for 250 favors, but for a smaller party or as individual gifts, we think the flower dresses up one of our Petite Caramel Apples in quite a lovely way.

Q&A Tuesday: What is Daffy Apple Red Candy Caramel?

 Daffy Apple Red Candy Caramel is very similar to our Daffy Apple Traditional Caramel, only red in color instead of brown. Daffy Apple Red Candy Caramel does not harden like a candy coating, it stays soft and easy to eat. It can be bought in bulk quantities, in a Red Candy Caramel Apple Kit with Crunch, or on our Petite Red Candy Caramel Apples with Crunch and Petite Red Candy Caramel Apples with Holiday Sprinkles.

Sizing Up Caramel Apples

CAM00336We are asked, quite often, about the size of our Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples.  The answer in terms of inches is 2 1/4in to 2 3/4in, however sometimes flat measurements for round things are hard to visualize, so we thought we would post a couple of pictures.  A baseball is a size comparison we usually offer, though we threw in a tennis ball, an average size coffee cup, a deck of playing cards, and a 16.9oz water bottle to add some variety to our picture.  In the photo on the right, a packaged Petite Red Candy Caramel Apple with Crunch stands beside a Premium Caramel Apple with Milk Chocolate and White Chocolate Drizzle, an unpackaged Petite Caramel Apple with Crunch, and a Premium Caramel Apple with Chocolate Mini Gems.  The caramel apples are in the forefront, so the size is a little deceptive, but in the second photo, below, the caramel apples are lined up evenly against the backdrop with the tennis ball and baseball.  The Petite Caramel Apples are about the same size as the baseball and tennis ball, but the Premium Caramel Apples are giants because they are created with much larger Granny Smith Apples and incredibly thick layers of caramel and premium toppings!CAM00340-1
