Delicious Fall Treat

This year I tried my hand at making caramel apples for the first time. I can't believe I didn't do it before! They were SO EASY to make and a huge hit!
I kind of cheated. I used Kraft caramels instead of making my own from scratch. All I did was put about 75 caramel squares (unwrapped of course) into a sauce pan. Then I added some evaporated milk and melted it all down. Whalaa! Then I stuck some craft sticks into my apples and dipped them in the caramel.

I also melted some chocolate chips and added evaporated milk to make the chocolate more spreadable and I put the chocolate over the top of the apples. Jeremy didn't want the chocolate ones, so I made some with chocolate and some without.

It ended up making 10 apples and they lasted us a little more than a week. We had them for our family home evening treat and then for after-school snacks. I'll definitely have to do it again. Maybe next time I'll be more ambitious and try making caramel from scratch.

Those look delicious. I may just have to make some. One trick I learned on my mission for making caramel - put a can of sweetened condenced milk in a pan of water and let it cook for several hours and WHAALAA - caramel. Good stuff.
