My little sister’s birthday was a couple of days ago, and we made caramel apples instead of the traditional cake. Allie always likes being different!
We got the recipe from the new Martha Stewart magazine. It suggested putting cute little twigs in the apples for handles. We used apples from our own tree.
The karo syrup and sugar bubble away until brown.
Then adding the cream makes it into caramel.
We melted white chocolate and chopped up dark chocolate for decorating.
The caramel stuck well after a couple of coats.
My apple looked disgusting, but tasted great.
Allie’s looked beautiful. Fitting for the birthday girl. What a fun way to celebrate!
