How to make caramel apples

 Ever wondered how to make caramel apples? Today I’ll show you how. They are super easy and a cute treat to give out!
How To Make Caramel Apples
First things first melting the caramel. I love using the kraft caramel bits…so much easier then unwrapping several caramels. :) Add a Tb or 2 of water and melt on medium heat until you get a nice smooth consistency.
Dip the apples around the caramel, and use a spoon to smooth. Then put candy corn, sprinkles, heath bits, chocolate or whatever your heart desires.
Put caramel apple in a cupcake holder and wrap up.
Tie with a cute ribbon, add a leaf and acorn and wahlah! Cute little gift!

    This looks so simple…I use to look forward to the county fair each fall just so I could buy a carmel apple. I will have to try the carmel bites…so much easier. Thanks for the simple fun idea.

    Yum! Love caramel apples. Thanks for linking up! Love the candy corn addition. I don't think I have seen candy corn on a caramel apple, which now seems like a given!

    I love this idea although, where can you get the caramel bits?
