#AppleWeek Day One Recipes

Bada Bing Bada Boom
The Easiest Caramel Apples Ever

I decided to start off #AppleWeek by using an all-inclusive caramel apple kit from one of our event sponsors Chocoley. [updated January 2020: unfortunately Chocoley is no longer in business, so I have removed all of the links to their site!] Okay, it's not actually all-inclusive; you do have to provide the apples. But what do you do when 5 pounds of chocolate and 2.5 pounds of caramel show up at your door? You have an impromptu caramel apple party. And, really, the Gourmet Caramel Apple Kit provides everything you need for 25 to 30 caramel apples except for the apples.

This caramel apple kit comes complete with:
  • 5 lb. Brick Chocoley Gourmet Caramel;
  • 5 lb. Chocoley Bada Bing Bada Boom Candy & Molding Gourmet Compound Chocolate (I got the Dark Chocolate);
  • 1/2 lb Piping Bags - White Compound Dipping Chocolate 2 Pack (1 lb Net Wt.) for decorating;
  • 35 Caramel Apple Sticks & 35 Jumbo Cell Caramel Apple Bags & 6 Heavy Weight Dipping Sheets; 
  • AND easy recipes/topping ideas to turn your gourmet apples into something so spectacular that it will make your friends and family call your caramel apples "legendary."
  • Gourmet Caramel Apple Kit from Chocoley
  • apples (I offered three different kinds)
  • assorted toppings (I offered diced candied ginger, other chocolate chips, sprinkles, and quins)


Melt caramel and chocolate in mixing bowls over simmering water.

Secure apples on sticks.

Dip apples in caramel. Let harden.

Then dip in chocolate.

Decorate as desired with sprinkles, quins, and more!

Repeat! Here are a few of the creations...and creators.

Once the caramel and chocolate set, enjoy! Bada bing bada boom - the easiest caramel apples ever!

After the kids were completely sugared up, the adults jumped in and made a few. But, we sliced the apples and shared...unlike the kids who devoured their own creations and went back for seconds. And thirds.

This was a really fun evening. I enjoyed the high quality of the Chocoley products and the ease of setting up a caramel apple party.

Don't forget, you can enter to win the Gourmet Caramel Apple Kit for yourself from Chocoley. Visit my kick-off post and enter the rafflecopter.

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found."
