  • Combine caramels and water in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring often, until caramel melts and is smooth. Stir in the vanilla. Dip each apple into the caramel and gently run apples around insides of saucepan to scrape off some of the caramel. Scrape excess caramel from the apple bottoms using the side of the saucepan.

  • Combine the miniature marshmallows and graham crackers on a dinner plate. Roll the apples in the mixture to coat. Place on the aluminum foil and chill.

  • Put the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Drizzle over the apples and return them to the refrigerator until ready to serve.

This is the second time I've made these and everyone loves them! I make them for my kids school Halloween parties and I feel so proud when all of the other moms can't believe that I actually made them myself. I make them with smarties and oreo cookies as well as the s'mores and they look just like I bought them from The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Company. I read many of the other reviews and the tips really helped! Try and buy your apples without wax but if you can't just wash them well in warm water and make sure to dry them well. Also when picking your apples balance them in your hand to try and find the most level bottoms so that they sit nicely. I can't say that this is the only way but I chilled them in the fridge like other members advised and that worked well for me. You'll find that rolling them slowely after dipping them will help the caramel set before rolling in the toppings or placing the smarties on. I had a baking sheet with parchment paper in the freezer where I put my apples for 5 min to help set and then tranfered them to the fridge. I know time consuming but worth it for all of the compliments you'll receive! Read More

Made these for Halloween. Turned out great. I made a couple of changes however. I took the graham crackers and crushed them to a fine consistancy and rolled the caramel apples in that. Then I drizzled bakers chocolate and marshmallow cream over them. Looked fine and tasted great. A little messy but will make again. Read More

OMG! If you love S'mores and you love Caramel apples then you're in for one heck of a treat! Not only are they pretty to look at but absolutely delicious. I highly recommend putting the apples in boiling water for a few seconds to remove the wax then letting them chill before dipping them into the caramel. This way everything sticks a lot better. This was very easy to do and the results were nothing less than perfect! Nothin' but smiles over Halloween for this little recipe and a lot of request for it next year! Read More

Great! My first time trying a s'mores candy apple. I opted to dip the whole caramel apple in milk chocolate and then put the grahm crackers and marshmallows on. I prefer the more rich milk chocolate taste because it is my favorite part of a s'more! I used a honey crisp apple. I would make them again and highly recommend them. Read More

Huge hit with my friends. Just don't burn the caramel...make sure to use room temperature apples and let the caramel cool a little on the apples before you roll them in the toppings. I put mine in the fridge too to chill them. Messy but great!! Read More

I made this for the Halloween party this year and everyone loved them. They thought they were beautiful too. I used a caramel wrap which when brought out of the oven was not sticky enough to roll ingredients in so I had to strategically place every marshmallow and cracker. It took forever! I also did not drizzle on the chocolate. I placed each chip on the apple. I also added a worm I made with some candy I placed in a hole I poked in the apple for a spooky-gross effect. Read More

These were soo yummy. They were quite messy and hard to eat though. I cut the apples into wedges just before serving so that they were easier to eat. Well worth the trouble. Read More
