There is an apple under all that oooey goodness....

I have wanted to make caramel apples for several years now since one of my friends made one for me.  But I always chickened out.  I just didn't think I could pull it off.  But this year I put my fears aside and went for it.  I figured the worst that could happen is I would have to eat my mistakes.  So I made four for my first go round and I have to say it was easier than I thought!
So I started with 4 big Granny Smith apples which I forgot to take a picture of and a bag of these amazing little caramel bits.  The are little bits of caramel that do not have to be unwrapped plus they come with 5 sticks!!  Brilliant!

I melted the caramel and white chocolate squares (in separate pans of course) then dipped them in caramel first and let them sit in the fridge for about a half hour.  When they were nice and solid I dipped them in the white chocolate.

I had a couple squares of milk chocolate in the pantry so I melted it down and put it in a snack baggie.  Cut off the end a bit and drizzled it on the apples like this:

Then I decided to chop up some walnuts and sprinkle them on top along with a few chocolate chips.

I then put them back in the frig for about an hour.  When they were done I grabbed some baggies and ribbon and wrapped them up!

I just made the tags using old scrapbook paper!  Simple, cute and delish!!  You didn't think I gave these away without sampling did you?!
