12 small to medium size green apples
12 popsicle sticks or caramel apple sticks
1 recipe homemade caramel (or 2 bags of store bought caramels, prepared according to the package directions)
Wax paper or parchment paper, for cooling
Chocolate for melting (I used white chocolate and semi-sweet chips)
Chopped/crushed candy bars and cookies and/or cinnamon sugar
Prepare the apples by scrubbing them clean and drying well. Insert a stick into each apple and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Refrigerate at least one hour. Make the caramel according to the directions and let cool 5-10 minutes. Dip each apple into the caramel, turing the apple around to coat all side. Let the excess caramel drip off the apple, and scrape a knife across the bottom of each apple to remove the excess. Place the apples back on the baking sheet and let cool to room temperature.
