Caramel Apples

OK – I love Caramel Apples!  I think it’s a combination of my love for Caramel and the memories of being a kid and eating this delicious treat.

Simple, simple, simple – and still I managed to screw my batch that I made on Halloween.  I melted my caramel with 2 tablespoons of water – had my apples washed, dried and stick ready.  I poured the caramel over the apples – Mmmm!  Well,  I should have waiting a bit for the caramel to cool off just a bit – enough that I could still pour it over my apples.  Instead, my caramel ended up rolling off my apples leaving just a light layer on the skin – the rest ended up at the bottom of my tray.  Oh well, they were still edible – we sliced the apples and scooped up the caramel!  Next time, I’ll know to be a bit more patient – and to add 2 tablespoons of milk instead of water as Paula Deen does on the Food Network ~ CLICK ~ for recipe.
