* 10 small apples (red or green are fine), washed and stems removed

You're How To Process:
1. Insert a 5-inch dowel or popsicle stick into a 5-inch length into the top of each apple. 
2. Place caramels and water in a heavy medium saucepan, and stir both of the ingredients together over medium-low heat. Continue cooking just until all of the caramels are almost melted, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat, and briefly plunge the saucepan into ice water to stop the cooking. 
3. Dip one apple into the caramel, coat the top and sides using a spoon. (If necessary, add hot water, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make the caramel easier to dip.) Roll the apple’s bottom in the peanuts, pretzels, or marshmallows that you desire. Transfer the rolled apples to a serving platter and let stand about 30 minutes or until firm.
