caramel apples

I recently went to a girls night where they made and tasted Caramel and chocolate dipped apples with different candy coatings.  They were amazing.  So we had some friends over and made some ourselves.
Completely easy and really good.

7 green apples
7 Popsicle sticks
Wax paper, sprayed with Pam
1 bag of Kraft Caramels
1 bag of chocolate chips
1 bag of fun size candy bars, chopped not smashed (shown are Snickers and Butterfingers)

*You can mix up the type of chocolate chips. We did some milk chocolate and some dark.  White chocolate is excellent, but any kind work.  Also, instead of candy bars you can use crushed Oreo cookies, pretzels, etc.  And, a big hit was white chocolate with cinnamon and sugar over it....tasted like apple pie!

Wash apples (and take off stickers!)
Insert Popsicle sticks.
Melt caramels in nonstick pan over medium heat. Once fully melted spread over apples with spatula. It doesn't have to be nice and pretty or smooth, because it will all be covered and not seen. Place on GREASED wax paper.  They will stick if not greased! Once all the apples have been coated in caramel, push down any bubbles in the caramel. Melt chocolate chips in microwave.  Heating in increments of 30 seconds, then mix.  Once melted and at frosting consistency, spread over the caramel layer.  Again, it doesn't need to look pretty. Immediately roll and pack with chopped candy bars.

I like to slice them to serve...that way everyone can have some of each flavor.
