Bite Size Carmel Apples

You will need:
4-inch lollipop sticks (wooden skewers can be cut down instead)
Melon baller
Granny Smith apples (one apple makes about 8 mini apples)
Butterscotch/peanut butter chocolate chips or caramel
Chopped nuts, nonpareils, sprinkles, shredded coconut (optional)
Small paper candy cups (optional)

First, cut the lollipop sticks in half at an angle (the pointy end will go into the apple pieces easier). With the melon baller, scoop little balls out of the apple. Each ball should have a section of apple peel. Push half of a lollipop stick into the peel of each ball. Pat the apple pieces dry.

Melt the chips according to the package directions, or melt the caramel. Dip and swirl the mini apples in melted chips, then roll the apples in nuts, sprinkles, nonpareils or coconut, if desired. Place the mini apples in paper candy cups to set. Or you can just put them on some waxed paper to dry.
