Harvest Caramel Apples


  • 5-6 Granny Smith apples
  • 1 lb individually wrapped soft caramels (about one large package)
  • 2-2 ½ tablespoons water
  • Jelly Belly jelly beans in your favorite flavors


  • Lollipop sticks
  • Non-stick wax paper


  1. Insert lollipop sticks into stems of Granny Smith apples; place in refrigerator 30 minutes.
  2. Line tray with non-stick waxed paper, spray lightly with cooking spray.
  3. Unwrap caramels, set aside.
  4. In large saucepan, add 2 tbsp water and caramels, stirring constantly on medium-low heat until caramels are melted (add remaining ½ tbsp of water if necessary). Once melted, remove caramel from heat.
  5. Working quickly, dry apples if necessary, and dip in caramel or spoon caramel over apples to coat. Turn apples upside down for a minute to coat and remove excess caramel from bottom before placing on greased waxed paper. Press Jelly Belly jelly beans into caramel to create patterns or designs.
  6. Refrigerate about an hour to set. Remove from refrigerator and let stand 10-15 minutes before serving. Keep refrigerated.
