Apples are in season, and Halloween is very close. Caramel Apples
are easy to make and oh so yummy! The Kids will love decorating
and eating them!

Ingredients

4 to 5 Medium Red Delicious Apples
14 Ounces of Caramel Candies
Halloween Jimmies or White and Dark Chocolate
chips
1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
2 Tablespoons of water
Wooden Skewers

Directions

Take the apples, wash them and dry thoroughly. Next remove the stems and blossoms
on the end of each apple.

In a double boiler heat one package of caramel using 1/2 a teaspoon of sea salt, and
2 tablespoons of water. Stir frequently until the caramels are melted and mixture is smooth.

Place a sheet of wax paper onto a cookie sheet.Take an apple and insert a skewer in the stem end. Then dip the apple into the hot caramel sauce, until
the apple is covered. Then place the caramel apple onto the wax paper to set and cool. If you want to add some chocolate chips wait til the caramel is slightly cool and a tad tacky. This way the chocolate won’t melt and it will stick to the caramel. You can use dark chocolate chips, or white chocolate. Just depends on your tastes.

For fun the kids can decorate the caramel apples, and make them look like Jack O Lanterns. To do this pipe chocolate in triangles for the eyes and
nose, and the mouth. Then use softened orange frosting, and green frosting as an outline around the eyes and teeth. Let the caramel cool to do it. Its a blast!
