Making Caramel Apples and Getting Very Sticky While Doing So...

This is how you make Caramel Apples. Well, this is how we make them, anyway.

Unwrap a whole bag of KRAFT caramels into a medium-sized pot. (A double-boiler will work better, but if you stir it well you could probably use a normal one.)

Turn burner on to Medium-Low.
Prepare your apples by washing them and sticking popsicle sticks into the top. Place them on buttered wax paper to wait for their caramel coating.
Observe the happy Caramel Apple makers in action:
Stir the caramels while they are melting.

Pretend your apple is a microphone and you are singing into it while you wait for the caramels to melt all the way.

When caramel is completely melted, hold apple in pot...

...and spoon caramel over it until completely covered.
Place apples on buttered wax paper (on a plate or other hard surface) and let chill in the refrigerator.Once chilled, (after about an hour of patient waiting) Let sit on counter for 15 minutes. Really. Otherwise they will NOT come off the wax paper. :) Trust me.

And there you have delicious caramel apples! ENJOY!



  1. YUM Julia!! I want a caramel apple. :( Can I have one? :-D
    Delightful post!


  2. YUMMY! Maybe I will try that! They look really good! Good job making them! Thanks!

    Laney :)

  3. Something that makes carmal apples even more irresistable is to melt in two seperate containers, white and milk chocolat. Then, you take a fork and generously drizzle the chocolate over the apples. They are sooo good and make a great gift. Olivia

  4. Looks Like fun! I've never made caramel apples........I might have to try it. :)
