Crock Pot Caramel Apples
These caramel apples are surprisingly easy to make: grab your slow cooker, melt some caramels in it, coat the apples, and voilá! Dessert is ready. If you have guests, prep the apples, set the cooker and just plate once it's dessert time. Plus, the measurements are easy to scale up if you have a party larger than eight.
We recommend a crisp, firm, and sweet apple that you would eat by hand, such as McIntosh, Gala, or Red Delicious. Make them extra-special with crunchy coatings. Toasted coconut, candy pieces, cereal, and chopped pecans are just a few ideas. See the list of optional coatings below the recipe instructions.
28 ounces packaged caramels
1/4 cup water
8 medium crisp apples
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Chopped nuts, peanuts, crunchy cereal, marshmallows, or dried fruit, optional
