Gourmet Caramel Apples

4 crisp apples, firm, unbruised
12 ozs. soft and fresh wrapped caramels
1 Tbsp. hot water
12 ozs. good-quality chocolate chips
About 1 c. chopped nuts

1.Wash and dry apples well, and set out at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. This is especially important if the apples have been refrigerated; they must not be refrigerator cold when dipped.(or caramel will harden too quickly)
2. Insert wooden popcicle sticks into stem end of each apple. cover cookie sheet in parchment paper
3.Place caramels in saucepan and melt over low/medium heat until completely smooth
4. Dip apples into caramel until evenly coated(use spreading knife to coat sides) let excess drip and scrap off the extra on the bottom. place on pan. Refrigerate for about 20-3o minutes.
5. Melt chocolate on low heat, after completely melted take off heat and use spreading knife to cover apples completely. Quickly roll apples in chopped peanuts and lightly press in. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
