  1. Wash and dry apples. Insert one popsicle stick in the core of each apple.
  2. Place caramels and evaporated milk in 1-quart microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high, stirring frequently until smooth, about 3 minutes.
  3. Dip apples in melted caramel mixture, using a spoon to cover.
  4. Place on waxed paper until caramel sets or refrigerate 15 minutes for quicker results.


  • For Extra Indulgence:
  • Press the bottom of caramel-dipped apple into chopped, salted skinless peanuts, toasted coconut flakes, crushed cookies or your favorite topping. To finish, drizzle melted mild or semi-sweet chocolate over apples. Enjoy!
