Easy Caramel Apples

Easy Caramel ApplesLong a staple of county fairs and fun fall parties, apples dipped in caramel are easy to make at home.

Recipe Ingredients:

5 medium apples, washed and well dried
1 (11-ounce) bag KRAFT® Caramel Bits
2 tablespoons water

Cooking Directions:

  1. Insert one wooden pop stick (from bag of caramels) into stem end of each apple. Cover large plate with waxed paper; spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Place caramel bits in medium saucepan. Add water; cook on medium-low heat 3 min. or until caramel bits are completely melted, stirring constantly.
  3. Dip apples into melted caramel until evenly coated, spooning caramel over apples if necessary. Allow excess caramel to drip off. Scrape bottoms of apples; place on prepared plate. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  4. Remove from refrigerator 15 minutes before serving. Store any leftover apples in refrigerator.

Makes 5 caramel apples.


  • Wash and dry apples thoroughly before dipping into melted caramels so that the caramel sticks to the apples.
  • Roll freshly dipped caramel apples in 1/2 cup chopped PLANTERS® COCKTAIL Peanuts. Place on prepared plate and continue as directed.
