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.

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!

And, of course, some close-ups of the apples!!

The gourmet caramel apples may have been the stars of the show, but be sure to check back tomorrow for more photos of caramel desserts we had on display featuring our All Natural Baker’s Caramel!!

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.

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!

CAM00983 UseNothing is more important to the making of caramel than sugar! Sugars are found in the tissues of most plants, but are only present in enough volume for extraction in sugarcane and in sugar beets. Sugarcane has been cultivated in Asia since ancient times, with large scale expansion taking place in the 18th century with the establishment of sugar plantations in the West Indies and Americas. This was when sugar became more readily available to common people, as before the 18th century honey was generally used to sweeten foods. Sugar beets wouldn’t become a major source of sugar until the 19th century, when better methods for obtaining sugar from them were developed. Currently, the world produces about 200 million tons of sugar a year and each individual American consumes about 130 pounds, compared to an average of around 50 pounds per person for the rest of the world.
