Our family makes these every year! They are so good!popsicle sticks
5-7 apples
1 bag white chocolate chips
1 1/2 Tbls. Crisco
14 oz. caramels
2 Tbls. room temperature water
parchment paper
Rice Krispies
Cinnamon and Sugar

Wash and dry apples and remove stems. Push stick through top center of apples about 1/2 way down.

Unwrap caramels and combine with water in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 second intervals, stirring each time until creamy. (Be careful not to over heat or else carmel with harden.) Immediately roll apples in caramel, coating completely. Then roll in Rice Krispies.

Place on parchment paper.

Melt chocolate chips and shortening also in a microwave-safe bowl for same 30 second intervals, stirring each time. Roll apples in the white chocolate, then cover with cinnamon and sugar. Place on paper in the fridge until serving. Cut into slices for easier serving and eating.
So yummy! And fun to make together as a family. And whether they are perfectly dipped or clumpy because your kids did them, they are still delicious!
