With Halloween just a few days away I couldn't resist whipping up a batch of yummy goodness. (drool). Carmel Apples!
I stuck, mostly with the recipe on the back of the Carmel bag, through in a had full of candy corn for extra bright orange color. (you know you cannot get that color in naturally). I melted the Carmel and the candy corn in the microwave. How simple?! I could have made plain old Carmel apples, but with all of those yummy gourmet apples out there I couldn't resist adding MORE! I chopped up some Oreos, M&M's and melted some chocolate.
Talk about 900 calories of sweetness. OH! it was soooooo good. I made enough that each child could have two, one M&M and one Oreo.
The problem I encountered is going to sound so bizarre. Yesterday it was HOT, 81 degrees here. We have had the air off for a couple of weeks enjoying the cooler temps. Well, when the temperature outside rises, so apparently does the temp on the inside. (who knew? heehee:) The temperature got hot enough that it remelted the Carmel. OH, NO! OH, YES! Now we have 3 apples sitting in a pile of Carmel, Oreos and chocolate. Somehow I don't think that will stop the kiddo's from chowing down after school.
