In her 3 Ways to Level Up Caramel Apples class on the Food Network Kitchen app, Lasheeda shows you how to turn ready-made caramel apples into impressive treats (pictured above).
Her Peanut Butter-Trail Mix Caramel Apples require only two ingredients, beyond the aforementioned apples: peanut butter chips and your favorite trail mix! They're simple yet satisfying, and they come together in seconds.
