Directions

  1. Insert wooden sticks 3/4 of the way into the stem end of each apple. Place apples on a cookie sheet covered with lightly greased aluminum foil.
  2. Combine caramels and water in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring often, until caramel melts and is smooth. Stir in the vanilla. Dip each apple into the caramel and gently run apples around insides of saucepan to scrape off some of the caramel. Scrape excess caramel from the apple bottoms using the side of the saucepan.
  3. Spread the trail mix out on a dinner plate. Roll the apples in the mixture to coat. Place on the aluminum foil and chill.
  4. Put the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Drizzle over the apples and return them to the refrigerator until ready to serve.

These are SO delicious, but the first time I made them, most of the trail mix and caramel slid off the apple onto the wax paper. The second time, I dipped the apples in the caramel and let them set up in the fridge for about an hour. Once they were set, I rubbed a damp paper towel around the apples (to make them sticky again), and then rolled them in the trail mix. It was an extra step, but they held up perfectly! Also, I found them easier to eat if you slice them up. Not as much fun, but definitely easier!

Yum, we used the trail mix with the colorful M&M's and almonds in them. Really looked great! Great idea!

The taste was good, the crunch of the train mix is a fun, dry alternative to the wet crunch of the apple. But eating it can be a challenge, not that eating carmel apples are ever easy.
