3. Add food coloring, turn off the heat and stir everything well to settle the bubbles.

4. Tilt the saucepan and dip the apple into the caramel. Rotate once so the caramel layer is not too thick, and is comfortable to bite into.

5. Let the apples cool on a Teflon mat, if not, on a silicone one. Cover with sparkles while the caramel is still warm.

6. Decorate with ribbons or candies of your choice, and pop into the fridge and keep cold to prevent caramel from melting.
