This is a fun recipe that I came across. Candy Apples can be eaten whole or sliced up and divided. Either way they are a fun treat for upcoming holdiay parties or even for gift giving. We all know of the the big, expensive Candy Apples sold in confection stores. Why not make your own?

2 (14 ounce) packages of caramels
1/4 cup of water
8 apples
8 sticks
Toppings: mini marshmellows, nuts, candy sprinkles, mini chocolate chips

Grease a strip of wax paper (enough for all of the apples)

Crockpot: combine caramels and water in the crockpot. Cover & cook on high for 1 hour. Stir frequently.

Wash and dry apples. Insert sticks. Turn crockpot on low. Dip apple into crockpot and coat entire surface. Place on greased wax paper to cool. Once caramel sets (tacky to the touch), roll in toppings of your choice. YUM-O!
