With the change in seasons and the temperature dropping to reasonable levels after an intense spring and summer, it feels good to get back to some of my favorite activities, like making toffee or caramel apples. We made some last weekend and they went pretty fast. I bet your family will enjoy them too.
4 large apples
1 bag of caramel candies
non-stick aluminum foil
Line a baking sheet with non stick foil, non-stick side up. Wash and dry apples, and then take a popsicle stick and insert in top of apple. Set aside. Take a microwave safe bowl and melt unwrapped caramel pieces in bowl for 1-2 minutes, depending on wattage of your microwave. Remove bowl with oven mitts and stir with large spoon. Caramel should be slightly runny.
Dip and Twist apple in melted caramel. If desired, you can then roll sticky apple in an additional layer of nuts* or whatever else you want. Place caramel apple on foil and let sit for ten minutes then serve. Apples can also be refrigerated for use later. Serves 4.
