|Salted Caramel Apple|
You start by melting the caramel bits with cream in a double boiler. Once the caramel has melted you add the vanilla and salt and stir until smooth. Now for the fun part. You dip and swirl your apples in the caramel. Let the excess drip off and roll the apple in your favorite toppings. Once the apples have cooled they are ready to enjoy.
Note: Depending on the size of your apples you will need to use one or two sticks at the bottom of the apple.

2. Stick one or two popsicle sticks (corn skewers, chopsticks) in the bottom of the apple.
