Serves: 4


  • 28 pieces (about 10.8 oz.) Werther’s Original Soft Caramels, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons 2% or whole milk
  • 4 medium apples, washed and dried
  • 4 popsicle sticks
  • Chopped peanuts, optional
  • Crushed cookies, optional
  • Melted chocolate, optional


  • Insert one popsicle stick into core of each apple.
  • In quart-sized microwave-safe bowl, combine caramels and milk. Microwave on high, stirring frequently until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  • Dip apples in melted caramel mixture, using spoon to fully coat. For best results, let melted caramel cool a few seconds before dipping.
  • Reserve on waxed paper until caramel sets, or refrigerate 15 minutes.
  • For an extra special treat, press bottom of caramel-dipped apples into optional toppings. To finish, drizzle melted chocolate over apples.
