First, you need some nice fresh Granny Smith apples, I used 5 regular sized ones.
Tip: the best place to poke the apple is just right beside the stem (shown below), not directly on the stem. If you hit the stem itself, it will be very hard to poke through.
I placed the caramel into a small sauce pan on low heat for about 30 seconds or so, while stirring...then turned off the heat. You just want to loosen the sauce a bit for easier dipping.
Here's how they turned out...
I couldn't resist the walnut caramel apple one! it's the best way to eat a fresh apple, if you ask me... =)
Have fun making these... just make sure to plan to make a mess =)
