Hi! This is Laurie from RecipeTips.com, and today, I am going to show you how to make caramel apples. When selecting apples to make caramel apples, pick ones that are medium-size, that are firm, and have a semi-sweet flavor, which goes well with the caramel on the apples. Make sure the apples have been washed and dried thoroughly, and then remove the stems from each apple. Once the stems have been removed, place a wooden stick through the stem end of the apple. Push it through about three-quarters of the way through, so that they are nice and sturdy. Start unwrapping your caramels. I am using a fourteen ounce bag of caramels, and that should be enough to coat five to six apples. Add two tablespoons of milk to the caramels, and begin melting them on medium-low heat, stirring constantly. Once the caramels have all been melted and they are nice and smooth, remove it from the heat, and it is ready to coat the apples. Twirl the apple into the melted caramel until it is covered almost to the top. Allow any excess to drip off, and then place it on a buttered wax paper sheet to dry. Once the caramel has coated the apples, you can dip them into nuts or sprinkles. For more great recipes, visit RecipeTips.com.
