Caramel Apples

These are so easy to make and probably one of my top ten favorite desserts. I love caramel apples! I love the ones at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, but they are expensive and you can only get Granny Smith caramel covered apples there. I think Galas or Honey Crisp apples are so much better covered with caramel. So anywho, I made these for FHE last week and everyone loved them.

Caramel Apples

2 bags caramel bits
1/4 - 1/3 cup heavy cream
chopped Heath or Skor bars, mini m&ms, or other favorite topping
5 large apples (I used Gala)

Heat caramel bits and heavy cream over medium heat until caramel is completely melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Dip apples (that have been skewered with popsicle sticks) in hot caramel and then roll in topping of choice, pressing into the caramel. Place on a parchment or wax paper covered cookie sheet. Let cool completely and enjoy - my kids like me to cut up their caramel apples into slices to make it easier to eat.

I like the way you think with the skor bars. I do love a good caramel apple.
