Caramel candies - This time of year they are easy to find, check the produce area at your grocery store or the  candy isle.
Apples - Any kind will do but I prefer Gala, Fuji or a Granny Smith... for dipping.
Sticks - Plain ole' craft sticks will do the job just fine.
2-4 tbsp water - Depending on how thick you want your caramel. See directions on the caramel candies bag.
Nuts - For your topping.

Put the caramel in your crockpot along with the water. Cook on high for 1-2 hours checking on it to make sure it doesn't stick. Use a wooden spoon. This is best done in a smaller crock pot so that when you dip your apples they are evenly coated.

As with all produce, wash your apples well to remove all wax and debris. Make sure it is dry. Insert a stick into your apple then carefully dip it into melted caramel. Use your spoon to remove excess caramel from bottom. Dip onto a plate of sugar to coat just the bottom then place on a greased cookie sheet. Repeat with rest of apples. Place in fridge for 30 mins. The sides will still be sticky enough to dip into nuts before being placed back into fridge for another 30 mins.

Apples in the pictures are caramel, chocolate then birthday sprinkles and the other set are caramel, reese's pieces then chocolate
