Use colorful M&M'S® candies to make traditional caramel apples extra special!
Sure, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but we crave something just a little more wicked for Halloween. Surprise your family and guests with these caramel apples that feature an M&M'S® coating.
1 dozen small apples, washed and towel dried
2 (14 ounce) bags soft caramels
4 tablespoons water
3 cups M&M'S® candies*
4-cup microwave-safe measuring cup
*Use traditional M&M'S® colors or opt for autumn colors with one of the M&M'S® Harvest Blends.
Insert a craft stick into the top of each apple and set aside.
Add the caramels and water to the measuring cup and microwave. Frequently check and stir the mixture until a smooth consistency is reached.
Roll the apples in the caramel mixture and then dip them in a large bowl of M&M'S®.
Place the coated apples on the wax paper and let stand in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes.
If you're handing out these special goodies to trick-or-treaters, wrap each apple in wax paper and seal with a twist tie. But be prepared: You may just discover that your visitors are coming back for more!
