Directions

  • Melt the caramels in the cream in a saucepan over low heat. Stir to make the caramel smooth. Remove from heat.
  • Spread the peanuts on a platter. Put the skewers in the apples. Dip the apples into the melted caramels, and let the excess caramel drip back into the pan. Roll the apples in the nuts, and set them on a platter with the stick pointing up.
