This recipe is simple and easy and oh so neat:
Small Red Delicious Apples
10 Kraft Caramels
1 tsp Water
3-4 Tbsp Hot Fudge
Black Icing Coloring
Use a knife to cut one end of the twigs down to a point. Insert the pointed end into the top of the apples. Set aside.
Unwrap the caramels and place in a small saucepan with about 1 teaspoon water. Place over low heat and stir continuously until caramel is melted. Add 3-4 Tablespoons hot fudge. Stir in black icing color until it reaches your desired color.
Carefully pick up an apple and dip into the caramel mixture and rotate until coated. You can place it directly onto the serving tray if you are using it for display purposes only. If you will be eating them, place onto a cookie sheet covered with buttered waxed paper to make them easier to remove from the tray. Repeat with remaining apples. Place your tray in the freezer for about 1 hour. Thaw for 15 minutes before serving.
