Chocolate Covered Caramel Apple Bites

This awesome Fallish appetizer/dessert is from Our Best Bites. I love caramel apples and these bites put all the taste of caramel apples in a easy to eat package. You can just cover them in chocolate or you can add anything you like on caramel apples like toffee bits, mini m&m's, chopped peanuts, etc. They are fantastic party food. My kids especially loved them!

Chocolate Covered Caramel Apple Bites

5 apples (Granny Smith or your favorite apple)
1 packages caramel bits
2 tablespoons water
1 package chocolate almond bark
toppings: toffee bits, mimi m&m's, chopped peanuts, etc.

In a saucepan combine caramel bits and 2 tablespoons water and heat stirring constantly over medium low heat until the caramel bits are completely melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Dip apples and place on parchment or wax paper until caramel is set.

Microwave almond bark according to package directions. Core and cut apples into slices. Using a skewer or fork, dip each apple slice into the melted almond bark and set on a sheet of wax paper. Sprinkle each apple slice with desired toppings immediately after dipping because almond bark will set pretty quickly. Eat right away or refrigerate until ready to serve. These apple bites are better to serve the same day because they will crack and get mushy within a few days.
