Matcha Caramel Apples

The classic caramel apple has taken a lot of dynamic turns since its birth, with chocolate drizzle and sprinkles galore. These simplified Matcha Caramel Apples are dipped in a tinted green caramel to resemble the poison apple from Snow White!

Makes 6-8 caramel apples.

An original recipe prepared for us by modest marce.


    • 6-8 medium apples
    • 2 cups caramel squares
    • 1 tsp Aiya's Culinary Grade Matcha
    • 1 Tbsp water, boiling
    • Sesame seeds (for sprinkling)
    • 6-8 twigs (see note), for serving


    1. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Remove stem from apples and press stick into the top of each. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
    2. Place caramels over a double-boiler (or in a microwave safe bowl) and simmer over low heat until fully melted.
    3. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the Matcha powder and water until the Matcha is fully dissolved in the water.
    4. Add Matcha mixture to the melted caramel and whisk until fully incorporated. Remove caramel from heat.
    5. Dip each apple quickly in caramel sauce until well coated. Place on prepared sheet to set. Once set, sprinkle with sesame seeds.

    note: We used twigs from our own yard & scrubbed them clean. We carved the ends of each to a spike so they could be inserted easily. Craft stores also sell faux twigs for caramel apples which work just as well!
