Caramel Marshmallow Apples

Caramel Marshmallow Apples

5 small apples
Popsicle sticks
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 tablespoon water
14 ounced soft caramels

Line a large plate or pizza pan with wax paper and heavily grease it. Wash and dry the apples well. Place the sticks into the apple to make handling and eating easier.

In a medium heavy saucepan combine the marshmallows, water and caramels. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the marshmallows and caramels melt and the mixture is smooth. Let the mixture cool for two minutes. Dip the apples into the caramel mixture, placing them on the wax paper to cool.

Once they are cooled to room temperature, place them into the refrigerator. Chill for at least two hours.

Serve chilled (very firm) or at room temperature (will be quite gooey).
