Homemade Caramel apples

The spirit of Halloween has really got to me, so I decided to make.... HOMEMADE CARAMEL APPLES!

What you will need:
7 apples
Skewers, or something to spear your apples
Two 7 ounce bags of caramels
1/2 Tsp of Vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons of water

You will need to remove the wax from the apples so the caramel will stick, so I washed them in hot water.
Stick the apples in the freezer for 15 mins (The caramel sticks better when apples are cool)
Remove apples from freezer, place skewer in apple. You might want to use something sturdier, my skewers were a little flimsy.
Wipe the condensation off the apples with a paper towel.
In a pot melt together the caramels, and the water
Once fully melted, mix in the vanilla extract.
Dip the apple in the caramel, turn the pot at an angle to do this so you can fit the whole apple
Dip the bottom of the apple in sprinkles, this helps the caramel from pooling around the bottom so much
Place in the refrigerator to cool
