    JenniferK2's Note:

    I first made these in Home Ec class in high school. They are a little time consuming, but are so cute - just like mini taffy apples!

      These were super easy and delicious! I didn't use the peanuts due to dd not liking nuts. This is definitely going to be a favorite in our house! Thanks for posting, JenniferK2!
