2 Large apples cored and sliced like discs (I got about 8 slices per apple.)
3 cups shredded coconut
11 oz store-bought or homemade soft caramels
1 ½ tablespoons milk
10 oz chocolate of your choice
2 teaspoons Sprite
Preheat oven 350°
Soak apples discs in Sprite till needed.
Spread coconut flakes onto a baking sheet and bake the coconut for about 10 minutes in a until lightly toasted, stirring frequently.
Remove coconut from oven and let cool.
Melt the caramels, and milk in a microwaveable bowl.
Cook in 30 second intervals, stirring constantly until the caramels are fully melted.
Then combine 3/4 of the caramel with the toasted coconut in a large bowl.
Dry apples completely with paper towels. If the apples aren't dry it won't stick.
Carefully spread the remaining 1/4 cup of caramel atop the apples then press on a portion of the coconut mixture with a spoon or spatula.
Let the apples cool for 30 minutes.
If the caramel-coconut mixture thickens too much at any point while pressing it onto the apple, return it to the microwave and warm it until it's melted again.
Melt the chocolate in a double-boiler or in the microwave.
Make sure bottoms of the are completely dry again.
Dip the bottoms of the apples in the chocolate and place them on a wax paper-lined baking sheet.
Use a fork to drizzle the tops with chocolate.
Let the apples sit until the chocolate hardens fully.
