DIRECTIONS

  • Remove stems from apples and insert stick into each apple. Set aside.
  • Place chopped nuts into small pie pan or dish. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt caramels with 2 tablespoons water, stirring until smooth. Reduce heat to the lowest setting just to keep caramel melted (if using an electric stove turn off but keep pan on burner ).
  • Preparing one apple at a time, dip apple into the melted caramel, twirling to remove excess. Immediately roll caramel coated apple into the nuts.
  • Place on wax paper to set, while preparing the remainder of the apples.
  • Put chocolate chips and shortening in small microwave safe bowl.Melt on high for 30 seconds to one minute. Pour melted chocolate into a thick large plastic bag (ziplock baggies works well).
  • Snip a tiny hole in corner of bag and drizzle chocolate over apples, while holding and turning apple to cover all sides.
  • Chill for 2 hours to set.
