At some point along the way, it became traditional to eat caramel apples on Simchat Torah. Maybe it has to do with the fact that the holiday always takes place in fall, or maybe it's that you can stick the caramel apple on the top of your Simchat Torah flag, but for whatever reason, they're delicious.
Making your own caramel apple is easy enough these days. Many grocery stores sell sheets of caramel that can easily be warmed to wrap around an apple. Then just add peanuts, sprinkles, chocolate chips, shredded coconut, or whatever toppings you choose. The possibilities are endless!

Wash and skewer your apples, follow the instructions on the caramel sheets, roll in toppings, and voila!
