Caramel Apples & My Granddaughters
Saturday with no warning became such a day! Mike offered to go by the store to pick up anything additionally we might need. Then soon he and Emily, followed shortly by Katie, were here twirling shinny red apples on Popsicle sticks through warm oozing caramel.
Ingredients for Caramel Apples:
12 small to medium juicy crisp apples washed and dried (Today we used Johnathan's.)
2 pounds of caramel ( I order 5 pound blocks from King Arthur Flour company during the cool months and keep on hand or use Kraft Caramel bits.)
2 C. crushed pretzels
2 C. mini chocolate chips
Meanwhile place the pretzels in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin or a can. Place the toppings you choose into flat shallow containers like soup bowls or pie dishes.
