When I was a kid my favourite holiday involved Disney rides and giant candied apples. And this Crunchy Caramel Apples ( and pears) bring back all the memories!
Making caramel is easier than one would think it just requires a bit of patience since leaving it unattended for very few min can be a great catastrophe. So if you make this recipe make sure you have enough time to keep a close eye on it!

Wash your apples or pears and pat dry. Insert skewers sticks in the middle of each apple and pear and set aside.
Prepare caramel by bringing a pot to medium heat. Add water and sugar and mix until sugar dissolves.Add maple syrup and apple cider vinegar and continue to mix for 1 min. Bring mixture to boil and then reduce to simmer and cook for 10-15 min mixing every few minutes.
Dip apple and pears on caramel removing any caramel excess and roll in crushed nuts. Let cool down for 5 min to let the caramel become crunchy.
