Caramel Apples!

Children of all ages get excited when they hear 'caramel apple', and here is why:

Caramel Apples!

6 green apples washed and completely dry
Insert sticks into apples
1 14 oz. package Kraft caramels - follow directions on pkg. for melting
Coat apples with caramel and let dry on parchment paper
1 package white chocolate chips
1 1/2 Tbls. Crisco
  • Combine chips and crisco and melt in 30 second intervals in microwave at 70% power until melted

  • Coat caramel apples with white chocolate (I use a spoon and then evenly spread with metal spatula)

  • Sprinkle with cinamon sugar before chocolate sets up

  • Tie your favorite ribbon combination on the sticks and enjoy

Great anytime of year for a gift to a friend, teacher or neighbor

Tip: Leftover chocolate??? Pop some popcorn and toss the chocolate and add some cinnamon for a quick and easy treat!
