Ingredients
  • Two 11-ounce packages caramels, unwrapped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Directions
  • Combine the caramels, cream, butter and vanilla in a small slow cooker. Cook on low, stirring every 20 minutes, until the mixture is melted, about 1 hour.

  • For a salted caramel apple, Katie sprinkles with chopped salted peanuts and sea salt.

  • For a sweet take on breakfast, Jeff adds crushed cereal and mini white chocolate chips.

  • For a Halloween treat, Sunny breaks up chocolate peanut butter bars and mini candy-coated chocolates for dipping.

  • For a caramel apple easier than pie, GZ dips his into brown sugar and cinnamon.

  • Special equipment: 32 ice-pop sticks

Cook's Note: The recipe can also be made in a pot on the stove over low heat.
