Wash and dry the apples.
Prepare caramel apple dipping station: Pour toppings into small bowls (I used coconut, sprinkles, and pecans). Line a plate with wax paper so you have a place to set the apples after they have been dipped and topped. Microwave caramels and water in a microwave safe bowl for two minutes or until caramel has melted, stirring after each minute.
Immediately roll apple in topping after it has been dipped then place on wax paper and allow caramel to completely cool and set.
