Raw Mini Caramel Apples


Ingredients

2-1/2 oz (70 g) raw unsalted butter

4 ounces (115 g) dark chocolate



Directions

Place the unpeeled apples in a small saucepan with 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for about 15 minutes, or until soft enough that you can cut them with a knife. 

Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Cut the apples into chunks, removing any stems or leaves. Process the apples, butter, and 2 tablespoons of water in a food processor until creamy. 

The sauce will be quite thick. In a double boiler, or using a metal or glass bowl over a pan of simmering water (don't let the bottom of the bowl touch the water), melt some chocolate until smooth and fluid. 

Fill a pastry bag with caramel apple sauce and pipe it onto apples. Cut each apple in half, then dip them into melted chocolate until coated with a thin layer. Let cool on waxed paper. Sprinkle with sea salt right before serving.
