Q&A Tuesday: When are Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples in season?

Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples are produced from late August until early December. Local customers in the Denver Metro Area may contact us to discuss order pick-up starting in August. We will not ship Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples until late September due to temperatures and the perishable nature of caramel apples. Please review the Petite Caramel Apple Ordering Deadlines & Information page for further information about shipping dates and timelines. We also produce a limited number of Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples in April each year, which is the perfect time to try a Petite Caramel Apple Sample Pack before ordering a larger quantity for a fall event!

Unique Toppings

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!

Use7

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!

Use6

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.

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.
