Wash and completely dry apples, then insert popsicle stick into the stem end of each apple.
For the caramel:
In a small saucepan, combine the coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup and lemon juice over medium heat until it reaches a light boil. Then slowly stir in coconut milk, sea salt and vanilla. Bring to a boil and let cook about 3 minutes, lower temperature slightly and let simmer until mixture becomes thick and dark. Stir occasionally to avoid burning. Remove from heat and let cool down completely to room temperature.
Once cool, dip apple into caramel, then roll into coating of choice (chopped nuts, shredded coconut or mini chocolate chips), then arrange standing up on parchment lined baking sheet. Cool in refrigerator at least 2 hours before serving.
