  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. Combine the miniature marshmallows and pecans 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.

This is a great recipe. One thing to remember: Apples may have a waxy coating on them that keeps the caramel from sticking very well. Rolling your apples in boiling water very quickly will melt ...

I haven't eaten them yet but they look great. Let me make a suggestion, please. Having never made caramel apples before, I didn't realize this, but I'm glad I learned and can share with others...

I converted the recipe to make 16 apples & found that by adding only about 1/2 the water called for to the chewy caramel candies really seemed to help. The toppings still began to slide towards ...

I had my son make these with explicit instructions to pop the apples in boiling water to remove wax as pr previous reviews. Well, he forgot this step and they were an absolute disaster with th...

Good, but I had problems with the caramel and toppings sliding off the apples, too. I found this tip on the internet that says to melt the caramel in a 4 cup glass measuring cup in the microwave...
