Get bakers’ caramel bits. If you can’t find them, use the individually wrapped caramels. It’s more time consuming, but it works. You can buy short apple sticks at the store or order them through Amazon. They’re like skewers but shorter and thicker.

My daughter, Cristen, made this recipe as a team member in the CARES program at an apartment complex. I was visiting her and her family once when she made the caramel apples. I had fun helping unwrap the caramels.

Cristen and her husband ran out of the caramel bits and had to buy the individually wrapped ones. It was all worth the effort when apartment residents came to get their apples dipped in caramel and toppings.

Host your own caramel apple event. It’s great for community, family, birthday party, and other events.

  1. Caramel apples from a crock pot? I would never have thought of this. It’s a great idea. How long does it take for the wrapped caramels to melt?

      I don’t recall how long it took, but I know that I stirred it quite a bit while I was unwrapping the caramels and adding them to the mixture.
