Crockpot Caramel Apples
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
These holiday treats are easy to make in a crockpot, which allows you a large surface to roll and coat the apples with caramel. At this time of year, most packages of caramels come with sticks just for this purpose. While the caramel is still very liquid, you can add other decorations, such as chocolate sprinkles or chopped nuts, but once the caramel sets, it’s too late.
Hands on time: 30 minutes Total time: 1 hour Serves: 10
2 (14-ounce) bags caramels
1/4 cup water
10 apples, washed and dried
Chopped nuts, chocolate sprinkles, optional
Meanwhile, place stick into stem end of apples.
When mixture is smooth, dip apples into caramel one at a time, turning to coat entire surface. Spoon caramel over top of the apple. Let excess caramel drip back into the cooker. If desired, roll in nuts or sprinkles before the caramel firms up.
Place apples on wax or parchment paper and refrigerate to set the caramel before eating.
