*You'll have to tip sauce pan on it's side almost, then roll the apples in the caramel.
*For extra added yumminess, you can sprinkle more chopped nuts on top of apples after dipping. And/or you can sprinkle many things on them from coconut to crushed oreos.
*Also, something fun to do, especially if giving as gifts...melt some milk, white or dark chocolate (or all three) and drizzle over the apples after they've set.
