  3. 3 Roll each apple quickly in caramel sauce until well coated. Place on prepared sheet to set.

  1. Easy, fast and tasty! I followed the advice of other raters, rolling the waxy apples in boiling water, wiping them down, putting the Popsicle sticks in them, then putting them in the freezer for 15 minutes. I microwaved the caramel and milk for 2 minutes and waited 5 minutes before rolling the apples in it. - Read more ...
  2. Things you need to know! 1) DO NOT wrap your apples in any type of clinging wrap. Even after they've firmed up. It will stick. Serve without wrap or you could try to loosely wrap with waxpaper. 2) Run a knife edge at the bottom of the apple to get all the excess caramel off. - Read more ...
  3. I have been making these caramel apples for a while now. The trick to getting the apples covered, is to turn them while dipping them.

  4. I kept my apples in the refrigerator overnight. Dipping chilled apples seemed to help the caramel set and I had very little "puddling" of caramel at the bottom. I used plastic forks instead of popsicle sticks for handles. I inserted the prong-end of the fork into the apple, which held it securely when the kids - Read more ...
  5. Yeah Suzie for submitting this recipe!!! I use this recipe every year for my kids' fall fun day. I melt the caramels in a 4 C pyrex cup, so that the apple fits down in the cup. This is the easiest way to dip that I have found (no wasted caramel). I give each child - Read more ...
  6. Great recipe! Made these yesterday just for fun and they tasted great. Like others I put my apples in the freezer while I melted my caramels and then put them back in the freezer for about 15 minutes. They set up great! Thanks for the quick and easy recipe!
  7. Caramel was a little too runny.
  8. So fast and so easy. I bought caramels in bulk and just unwrapped about 2 cups of them, added 2 Tbs. milk and then microwaved at 50% power for about 2.5 minutes. Let the caramel sit for a couple of minutes before dipping your apples. Tip: have your apples ready to go and in the - Read more ...
  9. This recipe saved me! I had to make 500 caramel apples for a church carnival...and this one worked great! It was a perfect consistency. Will definately use again and again. Thanks!!!
