Caramel Apples

You can't go through the harvest season without a good caramel apple.  They are so easy to make and not really a "recipe" but after failing three times to make my own caramel sauce I remembered...I don't bake.  So I bought the bag of Kraft caramels and whipped these up super fast.  you should too!  Get creative with the toppings.

Caramel Apples
14 oz bag caramels, unwrapped
2 Tb orange juice (you can substitute water)
6-8 small apples
popsicle sticks
3/4 c. chocolate chips
1-2 Tb vegetable oil
Wax or parchment paper
cooking spray
Place the sticks into the apples.  Put wax or parchment paper on a large plate or cookie sheet and spray with cooking sprayPut all the unwrapped caramels and orange juice (or water) in a microwave-safe mixing bowl and microwave 2 1/2-3 minutes in one-minute increments, stirring every minute.  Once the caramel is melted dip the apples and place them on wax paper.  Refrigerate apples at least one hour, until caramel is set. 

When caramel is set, begin melting the chocolate by putting chocolate chips and 1 Tb vegetable oil in a microwave safe bowl and microwaving 30 seconds at a time until melted.  Stir well and add more oil if needed for thin consistency.  Then, either dip the apples in the chocolate or use a fork to drizzle the chocolate.  After you do the chocolate you can add sprinkles, candy or nuts.  Refrigerate again for another hour.
