Caramel Apples

I'll be honest, i kind of just wanted to show everyone my picture. Presentation is not my strong point in cooking so these were kind of good for me. The recipe's not that tricky though, its pretty much the one right on the back of the caramels with a few little modifications.

5 medium apples, washed, well dried
1 pkg. (14 oz.) KRAFT Caramels (about 50)
1/3 package semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups oreos (or I did Snickers or any candy bar, or nuts)

INSERT wooden pop stick (they are included in the Kraft caramels) into stem end of each apple; set aside.
PLACE caramels and 2 Tbsp. water in large saucepan; cook on medium-low heat until caramels are melted, stirring frequently.
DIP apples into melted caramel, spooning caramel over apples to coat. Roll in chopped cookies, pressing cookies gently into caramel to secure. Place on wax-paper-lined baking sheet; refrigerate for about 25 minutes or until caramel is set.
Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips Drizzle over apples; let stand until firm. Store in refrigerator up to 2 days.

They look sooo good and I am so jealous because that's what we were supposed to be doing this weekend...but instead we're cleaning, packing, etc. I want one! What a marvelous presentation!

I loved the secret candy bar at the bottom. So yummy. Way better then the ones I attempted to make last year.
