Let’s Eat! Carmel Apple Creations At Kilwins

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Dining

We have all heard the saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." However, when you see, smell and taste the carmel apples of Kilwins at Broadway at the Beach, you (regardless if you're a doctor or not) won't be able to stay away!

We recently took a tasty course in carmel apple making and we enjoyed every sight and bite of our edible education and we're sharing it with you!

Step one: It isn't just any apple!

There's no mistaking the crisp and tasty tartness of the Granny Smith apple and when it comes to Kilwins' carmel apples, perfection is key!

Each apple receives a stick, the essential tool to adequately enjoy the dipped delight!

Step two: Create the carmel!

The blanket of hot, smooth carmel for each apple begins in a deep copper kettle where cream powder is added to hot water, followed by sugars, salt and butters all stirred and wire whisked until everything is completely dissolved. From this point, the stove is turned on high and Paige (our Carmel apple chef extraordinaire) starts the constant stirring process! Once the batch begins to boil, then comes the stream of evaporated milk, but not added too quickly so as not to disrupt the boiling. Again, Paige continues to stir to ensure the sweet liquid treat doesn't burn on the side of the kettle!

This step takes a while, giving us a perfect reason to sample some Kilwins fudge and ice cream! (Try the New Orleans Praline Pecan… yum!)

Now back to the carmel apples. Once the carmel creation is near completion, the stove is turned off, but the stirring keeps going to allow for cooling. Once a cooler temperature is reached, vanilla is added and stirred and voila, the carmel is now ready for the dipping!

It's the main event we have been patiently waiting for. Okay, not that patient because we did sneak a sample (or two) while watching Paige do all of the work!

Step Three: Let the dipping begin!

Each apple is then dipped, and completely submerged into the sweet, shiny and oh so delicious carmel. The first of the dipped apples were for the simple carmel apple lovers! But for the other tasty treat lovers, there are the toppings!

Just when you thought carmel apples couldn't get any better, Paige starts to dip the rest of the carmel apples in chopped peanuts and pecans! And we're not talking about a few pieces of peanuts and pecans, the whole apple is covered in the nutty goodness! Click here to see how it is done!

Once dipped and coated, each apple is placed on parchment paper to set. As a spectator, the waiting to set process may be the most difficult to endure as the magnificent masterpieces of Kilwins carmel apples are just waiting for our impatient palettes to partake! Okay, so the wait isn't that long. But when you have smelled the heavenly scents of fresh fudge, cool ice cream and perused through the other sweet treats of Kilwins, we were finally ready to taste! It was certainly worth the wait!

The Kilwins carmel apple creations don't just stop with peanuts and pecans, they also make other tasty varieties of the carmel apple, including Turtle Carmel Apple, M&M Carmel Apple, Stripped Carmel Apple (it includes chocolate… oh yeah), Apple Pie Carmel Apple, Sea Salt Carmel Apple, and the list goes on!

So as our Kilwins visit came to an end, we were left sugared, sweetened and abundantly satisfied! Now we have just one more question for our Broadway visitors, How about them apples?
