Butterfinger Caramel Apples From Nestle

I love Butterfinger candy bars and this looked so good I just had to post it. Bethanie at The Desire Of My Heart has a picture of these and they look ever so yummy. With fall here, these will make a delightful treat.

Ingredients:6 wooden craft sticks (found in cake decorating or hobby shops)
6 tart apples, washed, dried and stems removed
1 package (14 ounces) caramels
2 tablespoons water
2 (2.1 ounces each) NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER Candy Bars, chopped

Directions:LINE tray or baking sheet with wax paper. Insert 1 wooden craft stick into stem end of each apple. 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. DIP each apple in melted caramel; scrape excess caramel from bottoms. Quickly roll bottom half of apples in chopped Butterfinger, then place on prepared tray. Refrigerate for 45 minutes or until set. Store apples in refrigerator in airtight container. Apples are best if they are served the same day as they are prepared.
NOTE: If caramel becomes firm, return to microwave oven for 20 to 30 seconds or until dipping consistency. Two (1.5 ounces each) NESTLÉ CRUNCH Candy Bars may be used in place of NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER Candy Bars.
