Mini Caramel Apples

This is so fun to make with your kids. These are so versatile because you can decorate them to celebrate any holiday or just for laughs and giggles.

4-inch lollipop sticks (toothpicks work as well too)
Melon baller
Granny Smith Apples (one apple makes about 8 mini apples)
Kraft caramels
Chopped Nuts, sprinkles, coconut....The list could go on, so use anything!
Small paper candy cups (miniture cupcake cups)

*First, cut the lollipop sticks in half at an angle (the pointy end will go into the apple pieces easier). With the melon baller, scoop little balls out of the apple. Each ball should have a section of apple peel. Push half of a lollipop stick into the peel of each ball. Pat the apple pieces dry.

*Melt the kraft caramels in a saucepan on medium heat. Make sure to stir constantly until complete melted. Dip and swirl the mini apples in the caramel, then roll the apples in nuts, sprinkles, nonpareils, coconut, or whatever you may desire. Place the mini apples in paper candy cups to set.
