Ingredients and Supplies
- approximately 4 apples
- wooden candy apple sticks
- 1 pound "non-flowing" caramel

Wash apples and push a stick into each apple. Melt caramel in a microwave-oven a few seconds at a time, stirring between times until fluid; or melt slowly in a heavy pan over low heat. Cover apples with melted caramel, then roll in nuts (if desired) and place on parchment paper or silicone mat. Note---Caramel must be hot for nuts to stick.
