Caramel Apples

With my over abundance of apples, we are getting creative around here.  Last weekend the girls had their cousins over and we decided to make caramel apple slices.  None of them were likely to eat an entire dipped apple, and while scooping out little balls of apple with a melon baller to make mini dipped apples is cute, I was going for easy and fun.  So, we sliced, sticked and dipped our apples. . .then rolled them in more colorful goodness before eating them down and licking our fingers--Yum.

Open a bag Brach's Caramels and heat them in a sauce pan (or microwave) until warm and melted. 

Slice a couple apples and insert sticks into them.

Choose some toppings. . .we have walnuts, chocolate, cherry chips, and orange sugar sprinkles.

Dip in caramel. . .

Add your toppings.

The girls got creative.  Luckily their creativity was delicious--not an apple slice was wasted.  Of course we did have left over nuts, caramel and chocolate.  But I had ideas for those. . .

WOW! I never thought of cutting them before dipping them. That would make it so much easier to eat and enjoyable. Thanks for sharing!
