Caramel apples have always been one of my favorite Halloween treats. This recipe is so simple, they can be made in less than 10 minutes. With the caramel covering only part of the apple they are also a healthier alternative for the kids. To make these apples, here is what you’ll need.
6 Granny Smith apples
6 pieces of string, about 2-3 inches each
7 ounces store bought caramels
1 tablespoon skim milk
6 tablespoon roasted chopped nuts
Thoroughly wash and dry the apples and remove the stems. Insert a twig into the top of each apple. Unwrap the caramels and place them in a microwave safe bowl, add the milk. Place the bowl in the microwave, on high, for about one minute, or until the caramels have melted. Stir the mixture smooth. Dip the lower half of each apple in the caramel and then roll each apple in one tablespoon of the nuts. Place each apple on a serving dish and allow the caramel to set for at least 1 hour before serving. Tie a piece of string around each twig before serving the apples.
