Mini Caramel Apples

Okay, so these probably don't technically count as a recipe, but they were so cute, I had to share! These were so easy to make! I made them tonight at someone else's house for a small family get together, and they were devoured. I forgot my camera, so I was hoping to bring a couple home to take pictures of, but I had no such time I went back in to grab a few, they were gone! Luckily, I took a couple pictures with Mr. Z's phone beforehand, just in case. I would like to apologize for them being pretty crappy pictures, though.

I made these just to eat by themselves and just because I thought they were adorable, but I just know I will come up with some other cute ideas for them and make them again very soon!

Mini Caramel Apples
from From Glitter to Gumdrops, written as I made it

4 medium sized apples (I used Golden Delicious)
1-11 oz. bag of caramel bits (or you could use the individually wrapped caramels)

Using a melon baller, scoop balls out of the apple (I got about 8 balls out of each apple).
Stick toothpicks into the top (skin) side of each apple. Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper. Melt caramel according to the package. Dip apple pieces into the caramel and let excess drip off the bottom. Place upright on the wax paper. Refrigerate until caramel starts to firm.

Note: I would definitely suggest adding water little by little to melt the caramel. The package called for 2 tbsp. of water for the whole bag of caramel, which I used. The caramel ended up being way too watery and most of the caramel slipped off the apples.
