Original recipe yields 6 apples



  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 chopped cookies out on a dinner plate. Roll caramel apples in the cookies and place on the aluminum foil. Place the milk chocolate and white chocolate into separate microwave-safe bowls. Heat in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Drizzle milk chocolate over the apples, then drizzle the white chocolate over the milk chocolate. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Oreos worked really good here too. I also sometimes just dip the bottoms in the cookies and it gives a nice presentation. A trick I use is to dip my apple in the caramel then drizzle it with the dark and white chocolates. I let that set for a few minutes while I dip several apples. I let them set up on a cookie cooling rack with a cookie pan (covered in foil) underneath to catch the drippings. Then I re dip just the bottoms of the apples in the caramel and then cookie crumbs. It gives a great presentation and looks very pretty when wrapped in clear cellophane tied with a ribbon or raffia. Update... I also wanted to mention That the apples are usually dipped in boiling water for a few seconds to remove the wax, right? Well, since I make these every year I do something a little different to remove the wax now. I open a new "Scotch" scrub sponge and scrub the apple under hot running water. Apples dropped in the boiling water tend to discolor a little. The taste isn't altered, but I just didn't like that discoloration. The scrub sponge works great!!



Nice combination! Especially if you like sweeter peanut butters or peanut butter cookies in general. Healthier to eat them with a crunchy apple!



In the end you get a delicious treat. However the picture is very misleading. The only way you can posible make yours look like the picture is if you make sure and have the cookies ready before you melt the carmel, and then work extreamly fast. Otherwise the carmel sets up and the cookies don't stick. In the end I mixed THe cookies in the carmel and then dipped in the apples. It tasted good, but not what I expected.
