Instructions Checklist
  • Core apples and slice crosswise into 12 slices so there is a hole in the center of each slice. Discard the end slices of each apple (8 slices total). Pat dry.

  • Carefully insert a pop stick into each slice, making sure not to go through the hole. Dip each apple slice in melted semisweet chocolate and set on a parchment- or waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Set aside and allow chocolate to set.

  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan combine caramels and cream. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until smooth.

  • Once chocolate has set on the apple slices, carefully spoon caramel in the holes of the apple slices. Chill until caramel has set (30to 60 minutes).

  • In a small microwave-safe bowl heat milk or white chocolate on 100% power (high) for 30 seconds or until melted and smooth when stirred.

  • Transfer chocolate mixture to a small resealable plastic bag and snip a small hole in one corner.

  • Once caramel has set on the apple slices, decorate as desired by piping melted chocolate onto the pops. If desired, roll in or sprinkle with assorted sprinkles and/or chopped nuts.
