    A Fall Favorite! I used to make these at school and with my family when I was little. A fun, and simple, tradition for Autumn.

      A great, basic recipe for a favorite apple treat! Made as directed, but there was not enough caramel to cover 5 apples. I was only able to eek out 4 of them & one was pretty thinly coated (that was our "taste tester" apple. ;)) I would suggest adding a line to step #3 about covering the apples in the caramel, just for the benefit of a first-time caramel apple maker. I made these with my 4 year old DD and she had a blast counting out four piles of 10 caramels, unwrapping them all & decorating coated apples with sprinkles and melted chocolate drizzles. Thanks for a fun Fall evening, B.B.Grimm! :) Made & enjoyed for the Spain & Portugal Forum's Cooking with Apples tag event.
