Get a microwave safe 4 cup measuring cup. I HIGHLY suggest you use this instead of just a bowl because its 10X easier to dunk your apples in.

Start unwrapping all of the caramel squares and place them in your measuring cup. Yes I know its a pain in the butt to unwrap all of those little squares but its TOTALLY worth it!!

NOW IF your caramel is still not melted do 10 second intervals in the microwave. DO NOT OVER HEAT! This will cause your caramel to burn and you can't fix that so be careful!

Your caramel should look like this. Now, make sure to mix up the caramel as much as possible you don't want chunks :D Allow the caramel to cool for a good five minutes.

Take the apples from the freezer, place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. It is important you use parchment paper or waxed paper without it your apples will stick and become a mess.

I also suggest you take some PAM or any cooking oil spray an lightly spray a little on the parchment paper before putting the caramel apples on. This will keep them from sticking and making a mess.

Take the stems out of the apples by simply twisting them and then insert popsicle sticks.

Get a paper towel and wipe off any water that might be on the apples. This is also important, if there is water on the apples the caramel won't stick properly.

Like so, lift your caramel apple up and allow any excess caramel to drip back into the measuring cup. With a knife scrap the bottom of the apples to get off any MORE of the excess caramel.

Now, you can dress these apples up with crushed peanuts or even drizzle chocolate over them. It's up to you, my personal preference is just plain ole caramel apples. Can't beat the classics :D
