When I see caramel apples, I know fall is here and Christmas is on its way! Here is a super easy way to make some as gifts for family and friends or for yourself and your family. These are great treats to make with your children and grandchildren.

Easy Caramel Apples

**Caramels, 1 bag (1 pound)

**6 small apples

**6 wooden craft sticks

**Toppings: crushed nuts, sprinkles, crushed cookies, rice crispy cereal, fruity pebbles cereal, etc.

**Double broiler (or a glass bowl placed on top of a pot)

**Wax paper


Melted chocolate: milk, dark or white

Fill pot half way with water and place glass bowl on top to make a double broiler.

Boil water.

Add caramels into the glass bowl and heat until melted. Stir when needed.

Pour toppings into separate paper plates and set aside.

Wash and dry apples.

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.

Insert stick into the bottom of each apple.

Place apples onto wax paper lined cookie sheet.

When caramels are melted, dip apples into sauce. Then, place them onto wax paper.

Dip coated apples into toppings and let them dry on wax paper.

If you are going to use chocolates as well, dip apples into caramel and place them onto wax paper. Melt chocolate in double broiler and drizzle over caramel coated apples. Then, while chocolate is still wet, add toppings.

Allow apples to harden and wrap in plastic wrap.

Store in refrigerator.
