When I was going to do this, I was going to have variations, and let people choose–but I was going to make sure I labeled what they were.  (In case of allergies, especially nuts).  Not too many or you’ll be stressing out but I think we’d settled on 3.  Regular, nuts, and chocolate chip.

As to when you should start making them…I’m not sure.  Not too much ahead of time, some sites say as much as a week, but I wouldn’t feel thrilled about that.  They also say to take them about 45 minutes before you plan to serve them so they can settle to room temperature!

I am doing that same thing! We are having caramel, candy, and chocolate, and they will all be covered in a variety of toppings, with some left plain. We did the variety because I love chocolate covered and hate caramel apples. So I figured the varitey will make everyone happy.

We are also making ours the monday before the wedding. My sister runs an apple orchard and that was her suggestion, because they are something you can have done, and they won’t go bad, and they will have plenty of time to set, because you can’t wrap them right away. She also suggested wrapping them tuesday afternoon so they can set and won’t stick to the plastic wrap at all and they will look super pretty!

OMG girl.  That’s a lot of apples to make.  I sure hope you’re using small apples!  If I were you, since there are so many guests, I would maybe do 2 varieties.  If you have like 3-4, it could get to be too much with that many to make.

Just to comment on @MSBlueBerry – believe it or not, they can go bad.  Years ago I worked at Neiman Marcus and was friends with the girl who ran the epicurean dept.  They were constantly throwing away the chocolate and caramel coated apples because the apples were rotten and/or worms, etc.

@PrncssDva: yes we originally were planning to dip tuesday but like you were are doing 300… 100 of each dipping. So she said start monday and if need be finish tuesday. We are also putting them right in the fridge after, because they set much better.

I 100% trust her advice since she makes batches of 100’s of them everyday!
