When I was growing up, the caramel apples we got were the packages of caramel sheets you buy at Wal-Mart. My mom was never a huge fan of Halloween, or baking in general. I’ll admit I was totally chicken to try this on the stove… I don’t have a candy thermometer. Which is ironic, considering how much I love me some candy. Yumm. The microwave worked just fine This turned out pretty well, all things considering. I made half a dozen, and they were gone before we went to bed, so I guess they were pretty yummy scrumptious!
1 package (14oz) Caramels, unwrapped
3 Tbs milk
Remove the stems from the apples. Wash and dry apples. Press popscicle or craft sticks into the top of each apple. Make sure the sticks are in securely. Butter or lay out wax paper on a baking sheet. Place unwrapped caramels and milk in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, stirring a couple times. Heat the caramel until it is smooth in texture. Allow to cool for 1-2 minutes. Roll each apple in caramel sauce until well coated. Place on prepared cookie sheet. Sprinkle Halloween sprinkles on top or drizzle chocolate sauce on top, if desired. Eat up!
