Caramel Apple Crisp

6 cups sliced peeled baking apples
25-30 caramels
2 tablespoons water
6 tablespoons cold butter, cut up
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup quick oats
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
additional melted caramels and water for drizzling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place apples in the bottom of a 10-inch cast iron skillet or baking pan. Combine caramels and water. Melt in the microwave for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes and stir until smooth. Pour melted caramel over the sliced apples. Combine brown sugar, oats, flour, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the topping mixture over the apples and caramel, spreading evenly. Bake for 45 minutes or until the topping is golden brown, the apples are tender, and the sides are bubbling. Top with additional melted caramel, if desired. Serve warm with ice cream.
