Isalys's Choice:
Caramel Dipped Candy Apples
*A classic Halloween treat*

Prep Time:20 min| Total Time: 1 hr 20 min| Makes: 5 servings

What You Need:
5 apples, washed, well dried
*You can always do more if you want*
1 pkg. (14 oz.) KRAFT Caramels (about 50)
2 Tbsp. water

Make It!
INSERT wooden pop sticks (from bag of caramels) into stem ends of apples. Cover large plate with waxed paper; grease paper with butter.

COOK caramels and water in large saucepan on medium-low heat until caramels are completely melted, stirring constantly.

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 min. before serving; let stand at room temperature to soften slightly. Refrigerate leftovers.

Note: Feel free to get creative and add some nuts, maybe bits of Oreo or Halloween colored sprinkles :) The trick is to just have fun!

Just 21 days to go til Halloween *boo*!
