White chocolate-cinnamon caramel apple

6-8 green granny smith apples
6-8 wooden skewers.
wax or parchment paper
about 2 lbs caramels ( I had some left over)
4 T. whipping cream
2 blocks white melting chocolate (in the baking isle by the chocolate chips, and NO vanilla flavoring just regular white chocolate)
1 c. sugar
1-2 T. cinnamon

Wash all the apples and dry them off. Insert wooden skewers into the tops and push down as far as they will go. It is best to chill them in the apples in the fridge for a few hours. In a microwave safe bowl unwrap 1/2 the caramels and about 2 T. whipping cream (you can add more or less if you like).  Warm in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir, 30 seconds, stir... continue in this way until smooth and creamy. (about 2-3 minutes)  Dip and swirl one apple at a time until covered with caramel, stand on the wax or parchment paper to set.  Repeat until the caramel is gone.  Then if you still have apples left make another batch of caramel and do it again.   When you are done with the caramel mix in a bowl the cinnamon and sugar and set to the side. In another microwave safe bowl add one of the blocks of white melting chocolate and follow the instructions on the package (mine were 1 minute, stir, 30 seconds, stir, 30 seconds, stir and repeat until melted and smooth)  when chocolate is melted dip and swirl and set back on the parchment paper, (some chocolate will drip down, give about a minute to rest and then dip and swirl in the cinnamon and sugar mixture then place back on the parchment paper.  Repeat with remaining apples, when the chocolate is gone melt the next block in the same way and finish up the apples.  I let mine sit for about 5 minutes before people started eating them.

We have this chocolate factory down in one of the strip malls in town that has tons of super yummy apples.  This is the one my sisters, nieces and I ALWAYS get. so because they aren't the cheapest of treats I wanted to see if I could make them... it was a SUCCESS!!  :)  I made it on Halloween night and I think it may need to be a tradition from now on.
