14 ounces of caramels (about 40-50)
2 Tablespoons of milk
5-6 green apples
Sprinkles and/or chopped nuts (optional)
Lollipop or cookie bouquet sticks (optional)
1. Heat the caramels with the milk in the saucepan until all lumps disappear. Stir constantly.
2. To make a caramel apple on a stick: Pierce the bottom of the apple with the lollipop stick and push it at least halfway up the apple. Use a spoon to ladle caramel over the apple, working over the saucepan. Swirl the apple in the heated caramel. Garnish with sprinkles or nuts, if desired.
3. To make upright apples without sticks (perfect for slicing): working on waxed paper, ladle hot caramel over the apples and immediately garnish with sprinkles or chopped nuts.
