Let’s Review the October Baking Challenge

October 2019 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Homemade Caramel Apples

You nailed this recipe! Making homemade candy is no easy feat, but many of you were up for the caramel apple challenge in October. Some had trouble with the caramel not thickening up, but cooking it a little longer helped. Caramel apples are a staple treat during the fall season and I’m so glad you crossed it off your lists. Now you’ll feel more confident making them in the future, too!

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Sonja:

“Love this recipe! The apples were so delicious and the homemade caramel is definitely so much better than any store bought one. Thank you Sally, for another great challenge recipe.”

We gathered as many caramel apples photo entries as we could and included them below. (Email is the best way to help guarantee your photo will be included!)

Giveaway winner for October is Jennifer and she has been notified. 🙂

Reader Questions and Reviews

  1. I always love seeing these challenges–you’ve helped bring together such an amazing community of bakers and food enthusiasts! Happy almost-November, Sally!

    1. I really enjoyed making this pie! I don’t know why but pie crust intimated me and I was so please with how it turned out following this recipe! Then the mix of the pumpkin and praline topping were an awesome combination, love the sweet/salty and then the creamy and crunchy texture! Glad I joined the challenge!

  2. I have always been intimidated by pie. I have made a few and sometimes they turn out and others are experiments. Looking forward to this November challenge!

  3. This pie was amazing! Everyone at home devoured it! It did not last one hour! Definitely making this one again on Thanksgiving!!

  4. Hi Sally, could an Aussie participate in the challenge?
    Love your recipes!! Especially the sciency info, it’s so helpful~
