|Apples, well chilled|
|1 pkg||Crushed Pecan Pieces|
|To Taste||Sweet Pecan Rub|
|1/2 pkg||Bacon, crispy and crumbled|
|To Taste||Maple Bacon Shake|
1) Wash apples, then dry completely. (Note: In order for the caramel sauce to stick to the apples, the apples need to be well chilled before washing, drying and dipping in the caramel sauce.)
2) Insert wooden skewers into stem end of each apple. Microwave caramels and water in large glass bowl on High 2 to 2-1/2 minutes or until caramels are completely melted and mixture is well blended when stirred.
3) Dip apples, 1 at a time, into caramel sauce, turning to evenly coat each apple. Hold dipped apple over bowl to let excess caramel drip back into bowl.
4) Roll caramel apple in crispy crumbled bacon pieces seasoned with a sprinkle of Maple Bacon Shake or in crushed pecan pieces seasoned with a sprinkle of Sweet Pecan Rub. Enjoy!
