To get started, be sure to begin by rinsing and drying the apples you’ll be using. Next, replace the stems with these candy apple skewers.

To make the caramel sauce, you’ll melt caramel bits. Mix one full bag of the bits and 2 tablespoons of water in a large glass bowl. Then, microwave for two minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.

After the caramel is fully melted, dip each apple into the sauce to coat it fully. And if you want to add toppings like sprinkles, chocolate dip or chopped walnuts, have each one in a separate bowl big enough to dip the apples in.

Once you’ve added your favorite toppings, refrigerate until set.

While we’ve outlined the how-to for you, but be sure to watch the full video above for even more detailed step-by-step instructions.
