You know the old saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away?” I’m trying to keep the doctor extremely far away by participating in National Caramel Apple Day and there’s only once place in town to go if you’re craving this sweet dipped treat! Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory at Tempe Marketplace hand dips their apples daily then smothers them in various toppings including M&Ms, rocky road, or my favorite- the white chocolate rainbow unicorn- seriously, check it out below!
If you’ve never stepped foot inside a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, your dentist would probably be thrilled but you would truly miss out on one of the best candy stores in the country. The Tempe Marketplace location in particular reminds me of an old-fashioned candy and chocolate store serving up much more than dipped apples, but today it’s all about the classic Fall staple, the caramel apple. Combining the crisp and juicy texture of apples with sticky, sweet caramel and various shades of chocolate it seems like the apple is an afterthought but I think that the apple is just as important and the slightly tart enormous granny smith apples that Rocky Mountain uses is the perfect choice. If your mouth isn’t watering yet, I suggest you visit the store and see…I mean taste exactly what I’m talking about. One more tip: these make the perfect holiday gift for teachers, coworkers, and hostesses (because you should never show up to a party empty handed!) Stay tuned for the latest holiday limited edition apples Rocky Mountain will be rolling out for Thanksgiving and Christmas and be sure to check out Tempe Marketplace for all the holiday family events taking place this winter!
