How to Make It

Remove the stems from apples, and insert food-safe branches or craft sticks. Microwave caramels, vanilla extract, and water until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Quickly dip or drizzle apples with caramel mixture; roll or sprinkle with crushed peanut brittle or toasted pecans, if desired. Stand apples on lightly greased wax paper, and chill 15 minutes before serving.

I omitted the twigs, but it was a great jump off point!! I used crushed walnuts and also a drizzling of melted white chocolate too. They were a wonderful hit at our first fall gathering!! I was surprised at how easy it was to do, I'll never buy a caramel apple again, now that I know that I can successfully do it with ease!!
