5 apples (1-1/2 lb.), washed, well dried
1 pkg. (14 oz.) KRAFT Caramels
2 Tbsp. water
12 OREO Cookies, coarsely chopped
1 oz. BAKER'S White Chocolate
Yellow and red food coloring
Insert wooden pop stick into stem end of each apple.
Cook caramels and water in saucepan on medium-low heat until caramels are completely melted, stirring frequently.
Dip apples, 1 at at time, in caramel, then spoon enough of the remaining caramel over apple until completely coated. Roll in chopped cookies, pressing cookies gently into caramel to secure. Place on waxed-paper-covered baking sheet; let stand 25 min. or until caramel is firm.
Melt chocolate as directed on package; stir in 4 drops yellow food coloring and 1 drop red food coloring. Cool 15 min. Drizzle over apples; let stand 10 min. or until firm.
Caramel apples are a special treat that are fun to make with children. Keep an eye on the serving size as you enjoy this rich dessert.
