Caramel Apples

This is my favorite time of year not only because Fall is so beautiful, the weather is so nice and Halloween is on it's way but because it is apple season. Caramel apples are a traditional autumn snack and one you probably remember from your childhood. Kids love crunchy, sticky caramel apples, especially at Halloween. So line your table make some caramel and let the kids have fun making and decorating there own caramel creations. Here is a great recipe! Caramel Apples Makes 1 batch 1 cup sugar 1/3 cup brown sugar 4 tablespoons of butter 1/2 cup corn syrup (Karo) 1-1/2 cups heavy cream 1 teaspoon vanilla Wash and dry apples completely (air dry is best) and stick the sticks into the BOTTOM of the apples. They will sit better if you stick them from the bottom instead of the top. Make the caramel and dip the apples, then roll them in peanuts, candy or whatever you like and sit them on buttered waxed paper. Enjoy!

Some ideas for dipping your caramel apples:

Chopped up peanuts (my favorite)

Mini M & Ms
Mini marshmallows
Chocolate chips
Chopped pecans
Peanut butter chocolate chips
Chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups
Chopped heath bar
Melted chocolate for drizzling

Have fun!
