Christmas Treat: Caramel Apples!

Hi everyone! One of my favorite things about Christmas is the yummy treats, so today I'm going to show you how to make one of my favorites: caramel apples! These sweets are really easy to make, and perfect for parties or an after-school snack. 



Step One: 
Unwrap your caramels and melt them in the microwave for 1 minute. After it's all melted, stir in just a little bit of milk (around a teaspoon). You can add more or less according to your liking. The less milk you stir in, the thicker your caramel coating will be. The more milk stir in, the thinner your coating will be. 


Step Two: 
Wash and dry your apple. Make sure it's completely dry, because if it's not, the caramel will slide off instead of stick. 


Step Three: 
Dip your apple in the caramel, making sure all sides are coated. Then stick like a fork or a chopstick into the center of your apple, so you can hold it. 



Step Four: 
Place plastic wrap on your table, then set your apple down to dry. Optional: Decorate your apple with sprinkles! If you wanted to give it a festive touch, try red and green sprinkles-- or any other Christmas color. 


As you can see, I went a little crazy with the sprinkles. 


All done! After the caramel coating on your apple hardens, it's ready to eat!
 In my house, these treats don't last very long.  I hope you guys enjoy! 





Love,
