In a pot on the stove, boil the water and as soon as it is boiling, add the sugar and the red hot candies. Stir together until the candy and sugar are dissolved into the water. Add the apples and reduce heat to low. Simmer apples for 10 minutes or until apples are soft.
Drain the apples.I place a bowl to collect the syrup to use for inside the turnovers, but also to use any other way you'd use a syrup.
Unroll the crescent rolls onto a pan into 8 triangles, and spoon the apple mixture into the crescent rolls.
Spoon a tablespoon of salted Caramel Topping onto each crescent roll.
Roll each crescent triangle tucking in the sides to form a dumpling.
Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes or until golden.
Remove from oven, and allow to cool slightly. Transfer to serving platter and top with icing and sprinkles.
