How are caramel apples made?

This recipe is super simple to make because it saves a lot of time. We are going to use a store bought caramel sauce instead of making it from scratch! The recipe below will show you how to fold the tortilla with the sliced apples and caramel separately. That way, when you take a bite of the finished product, they’ll come together.

Can you freeze tortillas?

Yes, you can freeze tortillas! You can save the rest of the leftover flour tortillas after creating this recipe until you want to make this again!

What is the difference between candied apples and caramel apples?

Fun fact: some people interchange the words caramel apples and candied apples, but there is actually a difference! Caramel apples are dipped in a soft caramel sauce, whereas candied apples are dipped into red candy that hardens!

Can I add ice cream to this caramel apple tortilla wrap recipe?

Yes, you definitely can! In a large bowl, add in your apple tortilla with brown sugar cinnamon and put in your ice cream of choice.

Is it okay to make it with apple pie filling?

Putting in some apple filling in your caramel apple tortilla wrap is another way to elevate this recipe too! I recommend adding in some cream cheese or cinnamon sugar for some extra flavor.

Can I make this caramel apple dessert with condensed milk or with evaporated milk?

You can use any of these two! Jump to the recipe to find out what ingredients to add or use as an alternative.
