  3. Put the caramels and 2 tbsps of water in the glass bowl and stir gently as the gradually melt.
  4. Remove from heat and dip the apples in one at a time, followed by rolling them in your topping of choice.

    Thanks for the tips on how to make a caramel apple. My sister and I learned the hard way that certain types of caramel don’t work so well for making caramel apples.
