  • 1 tbsp.butter
  • Small square of wax paper
  • Freshly dipped caramel apples

  • Smear the butter evenly over the wax paper, using the smaller piece of wax paper to move it around the large piece.

  • Place the freshly dipped caramel apples on the wax paper, so they are spaced evenly without touching.
