If you've ever bitten into a caramel apple, you know it's tough to devour with any sort of grace. Luckily, there's a solution: inside-out caramel apples. Simply slice an apple in half, hollow out each side, and fill with caramel that has been melted over a double boiler. Top with your favorite candies and nuts. Enjoy immediately, or put it the refrigerator to serve later.

For the purists out there, Dylan also demos a traditional caramel apple on a stick, expertly decorated with popcorn hair, candy corn eyes, and a charming chocolate sunflower seed grin.
To see how to make these caramel apples, watch this episode of "Easy Does It."
Inside-Out Caramel Apples
Yield: 4 apple halves
1 14-ounce bag of caramels, unwrapped
1 tablespoon water
1 slice of lemon
2 Granny Smith apples
In a double boiler, or in a heatproof bowl over simmering water, melt the caramels. If caramel is too thick, add 1 tablespoon of water to thin out.
In the meantime, cut apples in half, and scoop out the center of each half, removing all seeds and leaving approximately one-half inch on all sides. Rub the lemon slice around the edges of the apple to prevent browning.
Fill scooped-out apples with caramel, and top with your favorite nuts and candies.
