We had a craft day with the sisters and My sister brought all the stuff to make caramel apples (and turtles and dipped pretzels, and your fingers.) And here is the best part—it’s made in the MICROWAVE! Doesn’t get easier than that!
Stir together and place in microwave on high for 3 min. Take out and stir well.
Put back in and cook another 3 min. Stir well. Repeat two more times…Then put back in and cook for 2 min.
Take out and stir well, then spoon about a tsp in cold water. If it forms into a soft ball, it’s ready. (for dipping apples, cook 2 more minutes) Add 1 tsp vanilla and stir.
for dipping apples, make sure apples are very cold. Let caramel sit for a few minutes, then roll apple in caramel and place on parchment paper.
We ate so much caramel…because it was delicious! she got those clear bags and placed her apple inside and tied off the top…so cute! it would be adorable to give to someone for Christmas!
then when we were stuffed my sister pulled out some Christmas paper and showed us these cute little twist containers…
Thanks for sharing your awesomeness, lol 🙂 I will be making these for sure. Cute!

Looks like so much! I miss my sisters so much! Will see them in a few weeks and hope to do fun stuff like this! 🙂 Yummy to caramel apples and I love those little candy holders! Might have to make a few for friends! Is that just scrapbook paper?

A-DORABLE was definitely looking for something with an extra added cutenes to give to my neigbors think I found it thanks for sharing 🙂
Wow, I feel like a celebrity that you posted about me on YOUR blog of awesomeness! 😉 (and thanks for not using a "great" pic-even tho you could have found one where I DID my hair!) 🙂 Fun day!! Lets do it again soon–maybe a chocolate craft day???…
I love your fun blog. And I would have definitely eaten a Cadbury mini egg found somewhere in the house… those things are amazing. I might have to go buy some of the Christmas ones and fill up little twist containers with them 🙂
So fun! Great idea! I gave you and award! Check it out…
hopefully the egg was still wrapped…under my stove there'd be dustbunnies stuck to it.
Love the little bags! I'll have to splurge on quality paper, the flimsy newsprint would tear too easily.
You awesome lady you.
cute! for once in Glue gun history. i make those twisty containers too!!! my family was tickled last year when I had them with their presents!!
i also have the same eyeball picture of myself from my webcam program…its hysterical!!!!
I love those twisty containers. I'm giving away so many edible gifts this year in an effort to save money and these are super cute (and easy) ways to package them. Love it! Also, I'm featuring you on a favorite things round up today.
I am doing this project with the treat containers this minute!! Thanks for this post. Just found your site over the past week and I love it. Love the chocolate love and the sister love (you guys are so blessed)! Looking forward to trying everything on your great site!

Stopping by from The CSI Project. I'm your newest follower. Those pictures are hilarious…I think I'll post some of our weird pics some day (I have an Apple, too). Those pics always bring me to tears. Oh, and I like your twist containers, too.
