Gourmet Caramel Apple

6 Apples Regular Size
1# Merckens Caramel
1# Chocolate

Choose a firm apple, like Granny Smith. Scrub off wax coating (new scotch-brite scrub sponge works well). Dry thoroughly. Insert apple stick. Dip in well melted caramel. Place on cookie sheet buttered or sprayed with Pam. Chill for approximately 15 minutes to set caramel and cool apple. Trim off the excess caramel puddle (can be re-melted). Dip in melted chocolate of your choice. Sprinkle with toppings or drizzle with colored chocolate to accent (EX: seasonal accent - Red and Green for Christmas, etc).
Melting Caramel: Microwave 1# caramel - 1 minute on high, stir. Another minute on high, stir. Additional time if necessary until well melted. (When doing large quantities of caramel, crock pot may be used to keep hot).
