  1. I’m attempting to make these, but chocolate won’t stick & keeps sliding…. Please help!!!!!

    1. Hi Janai, Sounds like apples are too wet and or chocolate is too hot. Try dab drying the apples with a paper towel and then dipping them.

  2. I made mini caramel apples last year but I love these – Thanks for linking up to Pin Worthy Wednesday, I have pinned your post to the Pin Worthy Wednesday Pinterest Board.
