How to Make Great Caramel Apples
Caramel apples are a classic fall treat that can be enjoyed by all ages. Making your own caramel apples is easy and fun, and you can customize them with your favorite toppings. Here’s how to make great caramel apples at home.
You will need:
- 6-8 medium-sized apples
- 1 package of caramels (14 ounces)
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 2 tablespoons of water
- Toppings of your choice (nuts, sprinkles, chocolate chips, etc.)
Wash and dry the apples. Insert a wooden stick into the stem end of each apple.
Melt the caramels, butter, and water in a saucepan over low heat. Stir constantly until the mixture is smooth.
Dip each apple into the caramel mixture, turning to coat evenly. Allow any excess caramel to drip off before placing on wax paper.
Sprinkle desired toppings onto the caramel-coated apples. Allow the caramel to cool and harden before serving.
Enjoy! Store any leftover apples in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
