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…
