Caramel Apples.

I honestly have never made caramel apples until now. Let me tell you, it will now be a tradition! My roommates and I decided we wanted to have a Halloween Party consisting of caramel apples and pumpkin carving.  Granted we hadn't ever really done caramel apples before we decided it would be safest to just melt the caramel squares, instead of making our own. So that is what we did.  We melted the squares. Dipped the apples. and decorated them.  Some turned out better then others but I throughly enjoyed the two I made.

Caramel Apples.

1 package of Caramel Squares.
2 tbsp. water.
4-6 apples. {depending on how many times you coat with caramel}
Greased plate or cookie sheet.

Grease a plate or cookie sheet to put the finished apples on.
Stuff a stick in each apple starting from where the stem is.
Put the caramel squares and the water in a small sauce pan.

Melt on low-med heat. Stir continually. {so it doesn't burn.}
Once fully melted dip an apple individually.
Wait for excess caramel to fall off the apple before placing on the pan.
{it will still probably pool below your apple.}
Wait for caramel to harden a little {like 2-3 min.} and then decorate apple.
