Candied caramel apples are so easy and an absolute necessity for the holidays. Make them for parties or even as gifts for your neighbors. They are delicious and you can use your creativity and make them fabulous. Simply buy a bag of caramels, (or make your own), melt them down with 2 tablespoons of water and stir until smooth. Coat the apples and let the excess drip off and place the apples on buttered wax paper. Decorate with candy, nuts and chocolate. Refrigerate to set.
