How to Make Caramel Apples

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Dip apples into boiling water briefly, using a slotted spoon, to remove any wax that may be present.
  • Wipe dry, and set aside to cool. Insert sticks into the apples through the cores.
  • Line a baking sheet with waxed paper and coat with cooking spray.
  • Place the unwrapped caramels in a microwave-safe medium bowl along with 2 tbsp water.
  • Cook on high for 2 minutes, then stir and continue cooking and stirring at 1 minute intervals until caramel is melted and smooth.
  • Hold apples by the stick, and dip into the caramel to coat.
  • Set on waxed paper; refrigerate for about 15 minutes to set.
  • Heat the chocolate with 1 tbsp of shortening in a microwave-safe bowl until melted and smooth.
  • Dip apples into the chocolate to cover the layer of caramel. Return to the waxed paper to set.
  • Melt the candy in the microwave with the remaining shortening, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.
  • Use a fork or wooden stick to flick coloured designs onto your apples for a finishing touch.
  • Refrigerate until set, overnight is even better.
