My niece, Angela, recently sent me this recipe from delish.com for caramel apple gelatin shots and I’m so glad she did. And so were the guests at the gathering where I served them! These tasty treats are like caramel apples with an added punch and I love how wonderful they look — they just scream autumn to me (of course you can enjoy them year round.)
These shots are really not hard to make — what took me the most time was unwrapping all of the caramels. I couldn’t find Salted Caramel vodka at the liquor store so I used Kissed Caramel vodka instead. I also switched out the plain caramels for sea salt caramels — I’m pretty sure these changes didn’t make a big difference.
To melt the caramels, I coated a microwave safe bowl with cooking spray, added the caramels and cooked them on high for a minute. I stirred them and cooked them for an additional minute, until they were completely melted.
