It has been a while since we have celebrated a national food holiday. Today we made caramel apples after school. n could not wait for k to get home from school!
We just microwaved Kraft caramels with a little water. I think the key was pre-chilling the apples in the refrigerator before dipping. The caramel stayed on pretty well. We let them harden up in the fridge on a Silpat and they were easy to remove.
The kids wanted to wait until D came home to eat them. I think they wanted to experience his silly and dramatic reactions that he makes when eating yummy food.
