Caramel Apples

A classic treat for kids and adults alike!

1 bag caramels
2 tablespoons water
Red Delicious Washington Apples
Craft sticks, lollipop sticks, or thick wooden skewers

1. Melt the bag of caramel and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes. Or, allow about 20 minutes to melt caramels in a 1 1/2 quart saucepan over a conventional rangetop. Stir caramel gently with a wooden spoon when it starts to melt.

2. Wash and dry the apples thoroughly. Remove the stem from each apple, and insert sticks in top of apple and remove excess juice on the apple.

3. Dip the apple in the caramel, place on waxed paper and chill in refrigerator.
