Caramel Apples

photo Country Living

This was a fun kid project, not an OCD Mama project. I resisted the urge to step in and "help". We used a recipe off RecipeZaar. You melt a bag of caramels with 1 Tbsp milk. That was for 5 apples, so I doubled it. It recommended having the apples cold so it would set up quicker. I washed the apples in a lemon juice and baking soda solution first to get the wax off the apples. Assembled Reeses Pieces, M&Ms and chopped peanuts.

And let the kids loose. Oohy, gooey, runny, messy. I will not step in. I will not step in.

Mmm, mmm, good! It doesn't matter if it is sliding off down your arm. Still good.

A little runny. It also said to put them in the refrigerator after coating the apples to harden the caramel. Yeah, right. Eat them babies!
