5 large, firm, green apples (store in room temperature)
1 bag white chocolate chips
1 1/2 Tbsp. Crisco
1 (14 oz.) bag Kraft caramels
Parchment or Wax paper
Cinnamon and sugar
Wash and dry apples and remove stems. Push stick through top center of apples about 1/2 way down. Unwrap caramels and combine with water in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 second intervals, stirring each time, until creamy. Immediately roll apples in caramel, coating completely. Place on parchment paper for a few seconds then pour some Rice Krispies in pie plate and roll carmel covered apple in them to coat. Place back on wax paper.
Melt chocolate chips and shortening also in a microwave-safe bowl for same 30 seconds intervals, stirring each time. Roll apples, covered in caramel and Rice Krispies in the white chocolate chips, then cover/sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Place on paper in the fridge until serving. Cut into slices for easier serving and eating. They are rich, one will feed 2 or 3 people.
