I made these for Halloween (sorry so late, trying to catch up on reviews). We liked them very much I just couldn't get the caramel to stay on the apples. It all slid off while cooling. I'm not done with this recipe, I will try again and just use a different approach. Kids loved them anyway as did us adults.....Stephanie

Thank you for this recipe. It would have worked wonderfully, if my kids had not, in all their wisdon (?) eaten most of the caramenls and lollies before starting to make these. But, they are still impressed and happily munching on their creations! :-)
