30 mini apples

40 individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped

8 tablespoons milk

1 1/4 packages chocolate candy melts (recommended: Wilton Chocolate)

1/4 package vanilla flavored candy melts, color of your choice (recommended: Wilton Chocolate)


Special equipment:
30 wooden pop sticks, cut to 3/4 of the length and bows, for decoration
  1. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Remove the stem from each apple and press a wooden stick into the top. Put the caramels and milk in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 4 minutes, stirring once. Add more time in 30 second increments, if needed.
  2. Roll each apple quickly in the caramel sauce until well coated and shake to remove the excess. Arrange on the baking sheet to set. Cool for 30 minutes.
  3. Melt the chocolate candy melts in a double boiler. Dip the cooled apples into the chocolate and return to the baking sheet. Cool for 30 to 45 minutes.
  4. Fill a microwavable squeeze bottle halfway with colored vanilla flavored candy melts and microwave it in 30 second increments, squeezing the bottle to distribute the heat. Drizzle on the cooled apples and decorate with a bow when completed.
