  • 6 apples
  • Craft sticks
  • 1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • water

TO GARNISH (optional)

  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 cup candy corn candies
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows


  • 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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For a layer of chocolate, once the caramel has cooled completely, dip the apples into melted chocolate, then nuts or desired garnish.
  • tip 2
    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.
