Crockpot Caramel Apples

Serves: 10

Hands On Time: 

Total Time: 

Ingredients

2 (14-ounce) bags caramels
1/4 cup water
10 apples, washed and dried
Chopped nuts and sprinkles (optional)

Instructions

In a slow cooker, combine caramels and water. Cover and cook on high for 20 minutes. Stir, switch to low and begin stirring every 5 to 10 minutes, as mixture begins to turn smooth and shiny, to prevent scorching around the edges.

Meanwhile, place sticks into the stem ends of the apples.

When the mixture is smooth, dip the apples into the caramel one at a time, turning to coat the entire surface. Spoon extra caramel over top of the apples. Let excess caramel drip back into the cooker. If desired, roll in nuts or sprinkles before the caramel firms up.

Place the apples on wax or parchment paper and refrigerate to set the caramel before eating.

About the recipe

These 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 sprinkles or chopped nuts, but once the caramel sets, it's too late.
