Simple Caramel Apples

Yesterday I went in search of caramels to make my Halloween tradition, Caramel Apples. I had to visit three stores before I found one that had them in stock. It was very frustrating – but, these babies are totally worth the irritation. You can go crazy with decorating caramel apples…drizzle with melted chocolate, rolled in chocolate then coconut or candies etc. I prefer the good old-fashioned original.

We had a great spread tonight at our gathering – I also made Wassail, Mom’s Tortellini Soup, Applesauce Drop Doughnuts, and Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Caramel Apples

Simple Caramel Apples

5 apples (I prefer Granny Smith)
1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
2 tablespoons water
Craft Sticks

  1. Remove the stem from each apple and press a craft stick into the top. Spread wax paper on a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray or butter.
  2. Place caramels and water in a medium saucepan and heat over medium low until caramels have melted – stirring occasionally. Turn heat to lowest setting and begin dipping apples.
  3. Roll each apple quickly in caramel sauce until well coated. Scrape any excess off the bottom of the apple and place on prepared sheet to set.
  4. Allow to cool in the refrigerator at least one hour.
