DIRECTIONS:

1. Make cookies. Prepare cookie dough & roll out following recipe directions. Use pumpkin Comfort-Grip cutter to cut out shapes. Use knife to trim off stem & shape apple top. Bake cookies and allow to cool completely.
2. Decorate cookies. Melt caramel apple, peanut butter & bright white Candy Melts® candy, separately, according to package directions. Position cookies on cooling grid over parchment paper-lined cookie pan. Use melted caramel apple candy in cut disposable decorating bag to cover cookies. Tap cooling grid gently to smooth & remove air bubbles. Use spatula to move cookies to parchment paper-covered cake board. Allow to cool in refrigerator until firm, about 10-15 minutes. Position dipped cookies on cooling grid over parchment paper-lined cookie pan. Use melted peanut butter candy in cut disposable decorating bag to cover bottom half of cookies. Tap pan gently to smooth & sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Allow to cool in refrigerator until firm, about 3-5 minutes.
3. Attach sticks. Use melted caramel apple candy to dip ends of cookie sticks, 1½"deep, and attach to backs of cookies. Use melted caramel apple candy in cut disposable decorating bag to secure if necessary. Allow to cool in refrigerator until firm, about 3-5 minutes.
4. Mold candy cups. Slightly flatten baking cups. Use measuring spoon to fill baking cups with approx. 2-3 tablespoons of melted bright white candy. Use brush to cover inside of cup to top edge, 1/8" thick. Allow to cool in refrigerator until firm, 10-15 minutes.
5. Assemble treats. Position cookies upright in candy cups. Use melted peanut butter candy in cut disposable decorating bag to secure cookies upright in candy cups. Allow to cool in refrigerator until firm, 3-5 minutes. Carefully peel baking cups off candy cups.
