Let's Make It
Wash apples, then dry completely. (Note: In order for the caramel sauce to stick to the apples, the apples need to be well chilled before washing, drying and dipping in the caramel sauce.)
Insert wooden pop stick into stem end of each apple. Cook caramels and water in medium saucepan on medium-low heat until caramels are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring constantly.
Cover large plate with parchment; spray with cooking spray. Place crackers in one bowl, then place sprinkles in separate bowl. Dip apples, 1 at a time, into caramel sauce, turning to evenly coat each apple. Hold dipped apple over bowl to let excess caramel drip back into bowl. Dip apples in crackers, then in sprinkles; place on prepared plate.
Refrigerate 1 hour or until caramel is firm. Remove apples from refrigerator 15 min. before serving. (Note: Caramel apples can be refrigerated up to 2 days before serving.)
Sweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.
Use Your Microwave
Microwave caramels and water in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 to 2-1/2 min. or until caramels are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring every minute. Continue as directed.
