I tripled the recipe for my son's school and it really did only take one pkg of caramels per 5 apples. I used Kraft caramels b/c I think they taste better than other brands. I dropped the apples in boiling water for 3 seconds each to remove the wax coating, however in the future I do not think I will do this since it turned the peel a slightly off, darkish color. Thankfully, it did not effect the inside of the apple at all. After chilling the apples, I dipped them in the caramel, then chilled them again for 1 hour. I then melted milk chocolate chips in the microwave according to pkg directions with a little shortening for the chocolate dip, then chilled once more for another hour. I also melted white chocolate chips the same way as the milk chocolate, added some Wilton candy coloring gel, and drizzled over the apples, adding some festive sprinkles. Overall the recipe is a little time consuming with the steps. However, these looked first class and tasted divine! Very rich though - great for sharing. I will be making these again!
