Ingredients

4 or 5 medium apples
Wooden sticks
2 (14 ounce) packages caramels (96 pieces), divided


Microwave 1 package of the caramels and 2 tablespoons of the water in a small deep microwave-safe bowl on HIGH for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring every minute. If caramel sauce is too thin, let stand about 2 minutes before dipping apples.


Dip apples into hot caramel sauce; turn until coated. Scrape excess sauce from bottom of apples. Place on greased wax paper. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours.


Second Caramel Layer


After refrigerating, repeat microwave and dipping directions with remaining the remaining package of caramels and 2 tablespoons water.


See decorating ideas below for warm caramel apples. Otherwise, refrigerate 1 to 2 hours. See decorating ideas below for chilled caramel apples.


Store decorated apples in refrigerator. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes before serving to allow caramel to soften. Makes 4 to 5 medium apples or 2 large (3/4 to 1 pound each).


Decorating ideas for warm caramel apples


Roll in chopped pecans or nuts of your choice; drizzle with melted apples.


Decorate with non-pareil covered semi sweet chocolate chips; drizzle with melted white chocolate.


Roll in graham cracker pieces and miniature marshmallows; drizzle with melted chocolate.


Roll in macadamia nuts or premium mixed nuts; drizzle with melted white and semi-sweet chocolate.


Decorating ideas for chilled caramel apples


Dip apple in melted chocolate, several times, waiting for chocolate to harden a little between each dip. Use white or semi-sweet chocolate or marbleize.

Decorate with melted white or semi-sweet chocolate and sprinkles.


Any of these apples can be decorated with anything you choose, such as raisins, chopped malted milk balls, peanut butter chips, chopped potato chips or pretzels
