I love Halloween! I think it is the most fun Holiday other than Christmas. The retail world has caught on to this as well and OH! the fun things you can find to make and to decorate!!
And Pinterest has taken it to the next level.
It makes my head spin.
But today, I am just going to do a Halloween classic. You can never go wrong with a classic. 🙂
- 50 pieces of caramel, unwrapped
- 4 popsicle sticks
- 4 medium sized apples
- 2 Tablespoons of evaporated milk
Wash and dry apples and insert popsicle stick into the core of each apple.
Place caramel and evaporated milk into a 1 quart microwavable bowl. Microwave on high, stirring frequently until smooth. (around 3 minutes)
Dip apples in caramel mixture and use a spoon to help coat.
Place on waxed paper until caramel sets.
The fun part is you can do a number of different things with your apples. You can roll them in nuts, crushed cookies, etc while the caramel is still wet or you can do like I did and decorate after the caramel has set.
So much fun and so easy!!
The great thing about these are how versatile they can be. I know they are traditionally Halloween items but you can decorate them to suit any occasion. They also bag up well and make great gifts!
