Apples offer a good dose of fiber and vitamin C; pistachios are high in protein and vitamin E

36store-bought caramels (such as Brach's, which come with sticks)
1tablespoon water
6Popsicle sticks
6medium-sized, crisp Granny Smith apples
6tablespoons shelled pistachio nuts, coarsely chopped

Place caramels and water in top portion of a double boiler. Heat until melted, stirring occasionally (chopsticks do a good job) until caramel is smooth, about 10 minutes.

While caramels melt, push Popsicle sticks into stem area of the apples. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Place chopped nuts in a bowl. Let caramel cool for 1 minute (so that it thickens and adheres better to the apples). Dip apples, one at a time, in caramel so that it comes about two-thirds of the way up the apple. Twirl apple as you remove it from caramel. Working quickly, press apple in pistachio nuts, using about 1 tablespoon of nuts per apple. Stand apples, stick-side up, on wax paper. Place apples in refrigerator for 5 minutes to set caramel.

Place a little gold star on the handle end of each Popsicle stick to add a festive touch to this unexpected fun-to-eat treat.

One serving equals 1 apple, 6 caramels, and 1 tablespoon nuts.

Why is the fiber lower than what the nutritional information says?
Weight Watchers modified the point system plan, where you can only count 4 grams of fiber for any food item, and the rest is ignored.  This modification was because people were abusing it and eating high fiber foods in order to make the points seem lower.
