  • Scoop 6 to 8 balls out of each apple using a melon baller. Dry each apple ball with a paper towel and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Poke each ball with a lollipop stick and refrigerate while making the caramel.

  • Place caramels in a saucepan over medium-low heat; stir in milk until sauce is smooth, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and cool caramel slightly, about 5 minutes.

  • Dip apple pop in the cooled caramel, allowing excess caramel to drip back into saucepan.

  • Pour nuts into a shallow bowl and roll caramel apple pops in the nuts until coated; arrange, stick-side up, on the waxed paper.

Initially I found that the caramel dripped right off so I lined a second cookie sheet with wax paper and stuck it in the freezer. After I dipped the apples in caramel and rolled them in nuts I sometimes had to pat them a little so they formed right and stuck better. Then I put them in the freezer right away where they shaped up pretty well! Also I had to reheat the caramel a few times. Read More

I made this & followed the recipe exactly. I put the apples in the freezer for a bit then tried to dip them in the caramel at different temperatures but the caramel won't stick. I buttered the wax paper I put them in the freezer after dipping them in caramel it's a gooey mess. These are ok if you eat them immediately because the uncovered part of the apple turns yellow. I really wish they had worked out. Read More

The caramel didn't stick. Like at all. Maybe the milk makes it too thin? The nuts definitely weighed it down and I think caused it to drop more. Half way through realizing this was not going to work I made a few without nuts. I "ribboned" the caramel from the spoon onto the apples and twirled it. Then proceeded to blow on it and kept swirling. Once I laid it on the paper it didn't drop as much but definitely still dropped. I made sure the apples were extremely dry also. Once it "hardened" I tried to manually squeeze the caramel around the apple with my hands but alas my efforts just made them a big sticky mess. Giving up I just stuck one in my mouth just to see how it tastes. And if it wasn't delicious. Someone needs to figure out how to make the caramel stick! It will be delicious! Read More

The caramel ran off of my apple balls while in the refrigerator. I also had trouble getting the caramel to stick to the apples even after drying each ball prior to dipping. Read More

I was so disappointed with result. I did everything meticulously including drying the apples multiple time. The result was the Carmel all slipped off the apple. The apple balls sat in a puddle of Carmel in the mini paper cups. A lot of work & time put into a huge disaster. Read More
