  • 1 bag Caramels I used 11 ounce size Kraft Caramels
  • 2 tbsps water
  • 2 tbsps sprinkles You can also use nuts, candies, etc


  • Wash, and fully dry six apples.
  • You will want to use non-waxed apples, or remove the wax using hot water.
  • Dry them fully and remove stems.
  • Insert sticks firmly into the middle of each.
  • In a small, thick walled stock pot (over low/medium heat) cook caramels.
  • You will want to make sure you unwrap them all first, and add the water in with them.
  • I used a wooden spoon to stir them constantly for about 5 solid minutes over low/medium heat. I personally prefer the stovetop method myself, but it does require your attention, and constant stirring.
  • Once the caramel is fully melted remove from heat and place on a trivet on your work space.
  • Dip apple in caramel and place it on a wax or parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Add coatings, and repeat until each one is complete.
  • Store apples in the fridge for at least 1 hour to firm them up.
