Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Insert wooden pop stick into stem end of each apple. Cover large plate with waxed paper; grease paper with butter.
  • Cook caramels and water in large saucepan on medium-low heat until caramels are completely melted, stirring constantly.
  • Dip apples in caramel; spoon additional caramel over apples if necessary to evenly coat apples. Let excess caramel drip off. Scrape bottoms of apples; place on prepared plate. Refrigerate 1 hour. Remove from refrigerator 15 min. before serving; let stand at room temperature to soften slightly. Refrigerate leftovers.

Cooking Know-How

Wash and dry apples thoroughly so that the caramel adheres to the apples.

Special Extra

Prepare as directed, rolling bottom of each freshly dipped apple in one of the following: 10 coarsely chopped OREO Cookies; 1-1/2 cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows mixed with 1/4 cup sprinkles; or 1/2 cup PLANTERS COCKTAIL Peanuts, chopped. Or, drizzle dipped apples with 2 oz. melted BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate.

Use Your Microwave

Decrease water to 1 Tbsp. Microwave caramels and water in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2-1/2 to 3 min. or until caramels are completely melted, stirring after each minute. Continue as directed.

    I did as the video stated and everything came out great I also made decorated caramel apples using nuts, peanuts and added peanut butter to the melted caramel. Great tasting and everyone loved them.

    remember to wipe off the oils and stuff so if the apple is shiny the caramel will slip off i also like to put in the freezer for about 10-20 minutes so the caramel firms up a little more before putting in the refrigerator
