I was thinking of doing homemade caramel apples. Is this going to expensive? How can I save some money by doing it myself, and is this a good idea?! I am worried that not everyone will be able to eat them 🙁

@peachbaby4008: I don’t know how much it costs or how to make them, but I would love to get one!!!

I have no idea how expensive it would be. How many people would you be making them for? I think the fact that you would be DIYing it would make it much cheaper versus paying someone to do it. I def like the idea for a fall wedding favor!

I have about 65 people invited. I have never made them before 😡

I wouldn’t like them. I don’t like caramel apples and I know others who don’t, either. Plus, I just think they’re messy. Unless you have other favor options in case people don’t want them/can’t have them, I wouldn’t do them.

I am having caramel apples at my wedding – the price should be pretty good since you are diy them. I am probably going to do mini caramel apples though and drizzle some chocolate –

I’m actually thinking about doing this too but I actually sat down and started thinking about the logistics of it and I’m not so sure anymore…

I am doing carmel apples as my wedding favors/ seating assignments for a September wedding of about 150 guests. Some of the prices I found online are super expensive ($16.00) for gormet delux carmel apples. I found petite carmel apples for aobut 2.99 a piece on the affytapple.com. a case of 12 is 29.95 which works out to 2.49 a piece. You have to pay for shipping though. I thought about doing them myself but, I don’t want to have to worry about that a few days before the wedding. I will just buy them and repackage them. Please let me know if you find anything cheaper. Good Luck and best wishes!

That’s a great idea and most people love them. Homemade is incredibly cheap, but you will need a ton of help to get it done, which is wehre family and bridesmaids can pitch in. Also, you will need to make sure the caramel is soft at all times so it is easy to work with, which is a challenge.
If that is too much for you, then ask a local apple orchard or fruit stand if you can order them in bulk, which is your best option. Caramel apples available online are very expensive and don’t resemble traditional caramel apples at all (being covered in hardly any caramel at all and tons of chocolate instead and other toppings but they mislead the public).
