Caramel Apples

(also delicious apple dip!)

1 1/4 lb (about 70) caramels, unwrapped & placed in a microwave safe dish
3 Tbsp. heavy cream or whipping cream
6 large Granny Smith apples
6 wooden craft sticks

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Dip apple4s into boiling water briefly using a slotted spoon, to remove any wax that may be present. Rinse under cool running water and wipe dry. Insert sticks into the apples through the cores. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and coat with cooking spray.

Add the cream to the unwrapped caramels. Cook on high power for two minutes, then stir and continue cooking and stirring at one minute intervals until caramel is melted and smooth. Hold apples by the stick, and dip into the caramel to coat. Set on wax paper and allow to cool completely.
