Really good. I did these with my son one afternoon. He loved them. Made them in a saucepan instead of the microwave.

I did mine in the saucepan, and I was glad I did, because the caramel cooled quickly and I thought it would be hard to get all the apples coated the way you want and onto the wax paper unless you kept the caramel heated. Anyway, they were great, and I served them at my daughter's birthday party and the kids liked them better than cake!
