Melt the caramels in the microwave.
Add sticks to the top of each apple, then coat them thoroughly in the melted caramel.
Place caramel apples on wax paper to set. (Cool completely)
Use the marshmallows to create your Mouse Ears. Slice a small part of the marshmallow off to expose some of the inside sticky part. Press them onto the caramel apple. Attach them with toothpicks to secure them in place. (Just remember to take the toothpicks out before eating!)
Melt the milk chocolate chips in the microwave in a microwave safe glass dish. Cook one minute at a time – stirring in between each minute cycle. It should only take about 2 or 3 minutes. Do not over cook the chocolate.
Now you are ready to dip the apples! Dip them into the warm melted chocolate. Coat the entire apple and ears. You want a good even coating. Give the apple a couple of shakes to get the excess chocolate to drip off. Set on wax paper to cool and let cool completely.
Cut some red bows ahead of time out of red ribbon, and while the chocolate is still semi-warm, press the bows onto the top of the Minnie apples.
While the apples are cooling, gather the red sugar crystals, yellow jellybeans (for Mickey’s buttons) and white chocolate chips (for Minnie’s polka dots).
Melt the white chocolate chips (except the ones reserved for polka dots) the same way as the milk chocolate. Dip the apples only half way up into the warm white chocolate.
Attach the jellybeans (Mickey’s buttons) onto the white chocolate (it will act as your “glue”) and then completely coat the white chocolate with red sugar crystals. Follow this same process for your white chocolate chips (Minnie’s polka dots) and fully coat with red sugar. Transfer to wax paper and let cool completely.
