These mini caramel apples are going to become a family favorite. No one needs to know just how easy they are to make. These apples are perfect for parties and get togethers. Be sure to make them the day that you need them and not ahead of time. The apples are best when eaten fresh and after a day the caramel will start to slide of the apples.
