Ingredients:

  • 6 lollipop or wooden craft sticks
  • 6 tart apples, washed, dried and stems removed
  • 1 package (14 ounces) caramels
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 24 pieces NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER BITES Candy, chopped

Directions:

MICROWAVE caramels and water in large, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 2 minutes; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth.

    Soooo Easy and Sooo Good!

    Martha Marshall from Missouri City, TX

    These are so easy and so delicious. I used Honey Crisp variety apples. Oh my goodness! they rival those expensive gourmet apples. Really easy and fun to make. Guilt free because they combine caramel and everyone's favorite butterfingers with a healthy apple. I served the grown ups theirs in slices. These treats are not just for kids.

    kellie burke from WARREN, OH

    The butterfinger candy made a HUGE difference in our house. My boys loved it!! They like caramel apples, but aren't crazy about the nuts. When I used butterfingers instead, they devoured the treat! A new favorite for our family.

    Not only are caramel apples delicious but with this recipe you make something fun that you can include other people in. If someone doesn't like Butterfinger you can even try a different candy.

    Butterfinger Caramel Apples

    Ellen Jones from MARIETTA, SC

    The minute I printed this recipe, my 19 year old daughter knew she had to make this. Any recipe that a busy teenager in college can make is good. But this recipe turned out to be fabulous. I loved the taste of the butterfinger candy, caramels, and apple. I highly recommend this recipe.

    Nice and Easy Snack

    Diahanna Hovanec from holtsville, NY

    This is a great snack to make and healthy too! We enjoyed making them and it was fun for all my 4 kids to use their imagination. We used candy coated chocolates and candy coated peanut butter pieces for a twist!

    Butterfinger Caramel Apples

    Pamela Montez from KANSAS CITY, MO

    These are simply wonderful. My grandchildren saw some caramel apples at the mall and I would not pay $5.00 for one apple. On the way home we stopped at the store and bought the ingredients and made ten Butterfinger Caramel Apples for the price of three at the mall price. We will make these often. Thanks for such a good and simple recipe.

    I found this recipe early yesterday and went to my local orchard and got fresh apples. These were awesome. Very easy to make and even better to eat. My friend is having a childrens halloween party next weekend and I can't wait to have the kids taste them. All of your ideas I got in my email were totally great. Thank you, we were struggling for good games and activities I will let you know how it goes.

    What a great recipe, I made them for my kids as a surprise for when they got home from school, it was great! I altered the recipe a little I made 3 of the Granny Smith and 3 with Winesap, they were both fantastic and the kids loved them!!

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy!

    Jill Darin from Geneseo, IL

    My boys loved the caramel covered apples. We used apples from our apple orchard (red and yellow delicious). I also improvised on the candy bar and chopped up Heath bar and Nestle's Crunch (we already had them at home). They were messy when done eating theirs, but all smiles.

    This was a great recipe, the taste of the apple, caramel, and candy was way better then what I was expecting not a big fan of sweets, but I really enjoyed them right along with my kids. My son's favorite candy is butterfingers so this was an extra plus for him he loved them. Fun and easy to make with the kids too.
