  • 1
    Bring 3 inches of water in a medium saucepan to a boil.
  • 2
    Insert a craft stick into the top end of each apple.
  • 3
    Dip the apples, 1 at a time, into the boiling water for 20-30 seconds, this will remove the wax coating on the apples. Dry thoroughly and place onto a sheet pan lined with parchment or wax paper.
  • 4
    Prepare the caramel by adding caramel candies and milk to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stay close and stir often while the candies melt. Once melted, remove from heat and allow to sit about 1 minute.
  • 5
    Dip each apple in the caramel, turning slowly to coat. Continue to turn, allowing any excess to drip back into the saucepan.
  • 6
    If desired, dip the bottoms of each apple into nuts, chocolate chips or other garnish.
  • 7
    Cool apples completely on the prepared sheet pan then wrap individually and store for 2 to 3 days in an airtight container.

Expert Tips

  • For a layer of chocolate, once the caramel has cooled completely, dip the apples into melted chocolate, then nuts or desired garnish.
  • Place the cooled caramel apples into gift baggies, tie with a pretty ribbon or string and give as take-home favor or gift at your next party.
