Ingredients

4 large
tart apples
30
caramels, unwrapped
30 large
marshmallows
1/3 c
butter (not margarine) cubed
1/3 c
miniature milk chocolate chips
1/3 c
chopped pecans (or any other nut)
1 Tbsp
water
lemon juice (to prevent the apples from browning)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Core the apples and slice them in 1/4 inch slices. Rub each slice with lemon juice or a fresh lemon wedge to prevent browning. Arrange apple slices on a large platter.
2
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the caramels with the water, storing until smooth. I use the high setting at 15 second increments.
3
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan melt the marshmallows and butter. Stir frequently to preven scorching.
4
Drizzle melted caramel over apple slices, then melted marshmallows, then sprinkle with chocolate chips and nuts. Serve immediately!!

For an extra spooky halloween snack, you could use halloween sprinkles. I love to add coconut, but one family member is allergic so no coconut for this family! Use whatever you like---simply delicious and simply simple!!

Not sure where this originated, but I've been making it for about 10 years and my family loves loves loves it!
