Double Chocolate Chip Caramel Apples
6 Granny Smith apples
6 wooden sticks
1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels
2 tablespoons water
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
½ cup milk chocolate chips
Start by wrapping a baking sheet with non-stick aluminum foil. Then, insert the wooden sticks three quarters of the way into the stem end of each apple. Place apples on the baking sheet. Meanwhile, place the chocolate chips on a plate and set aside.
Unwrap the caramels and place them, the vanilla, and the water into a saucepan over low heat, cooking until caramel melts and is smooth (avoid burning by stirring often).
Dip the apples into the caramel. Use the sides of the pan to scrape excess caramel off of the apples. Then, take the apple and gently roll it onto the plate with the chocolate chips. Place the apple back onto the baking sheet, and when all apples are coated in the caramel and chocolate chips, place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
