Double Dipped Caramel Apples

Note: We love caramel apples. They are so much fun to make. So much fun to eat. BUT, they are also so much fun to share with friends and family as special treats during the fall season! My boys define these as yummy to the tummy.

Double Dipped Caramel Apples
5 Granny Smith apples (or Fuji)
5 popsicle sticks
14 ounces (about 50 pieces) of unwrapped caramels
2 Tbsp water
12 ounces semisweet chocolate
"Toppings": mini M&M's, nuts, sprinkles, mini chocolate chips,

Rinse and dry your apples. Insert popsicle sticks about halfway into apples. Bring a pan of water to a boil. Place caramels and 2 Tbsp water into a bowl and place over the boiling water and stir until melted. Dip each apple into the caramel about 1/2 - 3/4 of the way. Use a spoon to wipe off excess caramel back into teh bowl and place apple on waxed paper. Once all the apples have been dipped, place them (still on wax paper) in the refrigerator to get firm for about five minutes.

Re-boil water and place chocolate over boiling water to melt. Take apples out of the refrigerator and dip each apple in the chocolate. Place each apple on wax paper to set for about 10 minutes.

Take each apple and roll the bottom 1/3 in the topping of your choice. Seasonal colored sprinkles look great or just tickle your taste buds with your favorite crushed candy bar or candy pieces.

I thought of making caramel apples when I saw the sticks in the bag of candy my husband bought.
