Today’s apple puts a smile on my face. My sweet little boy is always telling me he is a “chunky monkey” and indeed he is. Not only is the name adorable, but the combo of peanut butter, chocolate and banana can’t be beat.

The “Elvis” Caramel Apple


  • Caramel:
  • ¼ cups Butter
  • 1 cup White Syrup
  • 14 ounces, fluid Eagle Brand Condensed Milk
  • 2 cups White Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • Apples
  • Chopped banana chips
  • chopped peanuts
  • mini chocolate chips
  • melted peanut butter or peanut butter chips


  • Assemble all ingredients: wash and dry apples, insert sticks, and butter a cookie sheet or like cookie sheet with silicone baking mat.
  • Heat all ingredients except vanilla in a heavy 2-quart saucepan over medium/low heat, stirring constantly.
  • When caramel reaches soft ball stage (235°F–240°F) remove from heat and add vanilla. Let cool a few minutes. I like to pour the caramel into a preheated slow cooker to keep warm.
  • Using the stick inserted in the apples, dunk apples in the hot caramel and twirl slowly away from the heat for a couple of minutes.
  • Dip apples in banana chips, chocolate chips and peanuts. Drizzle with melted peanut butter or peanut butter chips.
