I have a confession to make. Before last week I had never eaten a caramel apple. Ever. Weird? My hubby thought so. He insisted that we make caramel apples before Halloween so last weekend I bit the bullet and decided to make some. It's sad that I have been missing this all of my life! I think this is definitely going to be a tradition at our house.
6 small apples
1 bag (14 oz) caramels
2 Tbsp. water
Toppings of your choice*
Stick a popsicle stick into each apple. Set aside. Crush up your choice of toppings. Set aside. Combine caramels and water in a pot and melt over medium heat. Stir constantly. Once melted completely, dip apples into caramel and then roll in your topping. Set on wax paper and let sit for 30 minutes.
*Topping ideas: reeces peices, oreos, sprinkles, coconut, nuts, chocolate chips, candy bars, etc.
