Spread the caramel over an apple using a small frosting knife
. Dip or pat your topping of choice onto the caramel apple. Set the finished apple on the plate covered with wax paper. Repeat with all apples, then place them in the fridge for at least 10 minutes. The longer you leave the apples in the fridge the more time it will allow the caramel to slightly harden and gain a caramel like consistency.
