|4||Or 5 medium apples|
|4||Or 5 wooden sticks|
|1 pack||14 oz Caramels (48)|
Wash and dry apples; insert stick into stem end of each apple.
Microwave caramels and water in small deep microwave safe bowl on high for 2½ - 3 minutes or until sauce is smooth, stirring after each minute. If caramel sauce is too thin, let stand about two minutes before dipping apples.
Dip apples into hot caramel sauce; turn until coated. Scrape excess sauce from bottom of apples. Place on greased wax paper. Decorate with candy if desired.
Serve immediately or store in refreigerator for up to two days. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes before serving to allow caramel to soften.
Conventional method you would wash and dry apples; insert stick into stem end of each apple. Melt caramel with water in 1 ½ quart heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently until smooth. Continue as above.
For some variation you could substitute pears for apples.
