The following is the recipie from Family Fun.
|4-inch lollipop sticks|
|Granny Smith apples (one apple makes about 8 mini apples)|
|Butterscotch or peanut butter chips|
|Chopped nuts, nonpareils, sprinkles, shredded coconut (optional)|
|Small paper candy cups|
2. Melt the chips according to the package directions. Dip and swirl the mini apples in the melted chips, then roll the apples in nuts, sprinkles, nonpareils, or coconut, if desired. Place the mini apples in paper candy cups to set.
It is interesting that the recipe calls for butterscotch or peanut butter chips. I wonder if these stick to the apple better than caramel. Another recipe I found said to roll the apple in flour to make the melted caramel stick better. Many people complain that the caramel just slides right off the juicy apple. But I say go for milk chocolate chips.
