One of our favorite things about Halloween is that you get to steal your kids' trick or treat candy. Another perk is that Halloween is the only time of year it's acceptable to dunk fruit into caramel and eat it off of a stick. We found this quick and easy recipe from the Kraft website, and in our opinion, you're allowed to make it 365 days a year.
5 apples (1 1/2 pounds), washed, well dried
1 package (14 ounces) caramels
2 tablespoon water
How to Make It:
1. Insert wooden pop stick into stem end of each apple. Cover large plate with waxed paper; grease paper with butter.
2. Cook caramels and water in large saucepan on medium-low heat until caramels are completely melted, stirring constantly.
3. Dip apples in caramel; spoon additional caramel over apples if necessary to evenly coat apples. Let excess caramel drip off. Scrape bottoms of apples; place on prepared plate. Refrigerate 1 hour. Remove from refrigerator 15 minutes before serving; let stand at room temperature to soften slightly. Refrigerate leftovers.
