* Caramel Apples

Hi everyone!! I have been wanting to make Caramel apples for a while now.. and being that this was a weekend where I had nothing to do... wait, rephrase that.. I didn't have any where that I needed to go, or had any sort of plans (aside from doing school work) I finally decided to make some!!

I had an idea of how to make them.. but I still searched around the net to put me in the right direction...I found a recipe by Paula Dean and used it as a guide.. kind of...

Ingredients:
4 Apples
2 5.5 oz bags of Caramel's
4 Craft Sticks

Directions:
Remove the stem of your apples and insert a craft stick in each apple, place apples in fridge until ready to coat with Caramel sauce. Get a baking sheet and wax paper, be sure to butter the wax paper (I didn't at first and I really do not suggest forgetting this step!!).


Remove the Caramel wrappers and place in a sauce pan, heat over low-medium heat


Once Caramel melts roll your apples in the Caramel


Place the apples on the prepared baking sheet and set them in the fridge



I melted some chocolate and drizzled it over the apples and added 
some chopped nuts!! The sky is the limit!!


They aren't the most impressive looking, but they sure are tasty!! The leaves have all changed colors.. hot tea and cocoa are perfect in the evenings...What are your favorite things about the season??

Happy Eating!!

  4. I disagree...these are very impressive! I've enjoyed quite a few caramel apples over the years, but I've never made my own. These look amazing! Thank you for sharing. I hope your week brims with hope and joy.
