at least they tasted good!

Hello blog world! I have been MIA! Things have been awfully busy for me, and I haven't had much time to do crafty fun things or blog but alas here I am!! Did you miss me!?! LOL :)
Yesterday in the spirit of all things FALL my best friend came over and we decided to make some delicious homemade caramel apples. I have never made them and it was pretty fun and easy!! All you need is a bag of caramel (they come with the sticks), apples, and whatever toppings your little heart desires. We chose oreos, and heath bar bits. YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!
So technically two bags of caramels are supposed to make like 10 or 12 apples, but we have a sweet tooth so we only got 5 apples so we could REALLY coat them in caramel.
So, we melted the caramel, and then went for it. Again, neither of us have ever made apples and let's be real, we aren't Martha Stewart, so we just went for it with the caramel. No holds bar, just coated, and coated, and coated some more.
I didn't really take a picture of the apples after we finished them. Let's just say it looks like something my 5 year old niece would have done. But as we said all night, they aren't going to look pretty but they sure will taste GOOD!!! WE decided to "inspect" the caramel to make sure it was up to standard. It SURE was good!
After letting them cool for a hour, it was FINALLY time to taste them. They sure were yummy to the tummy!!

All in all, it was a lot of fun to make them and even more fun to eat them. Maybe I have found a new fall tradition? I think so.

In other news, it SNOWED today. Yes, snow. Just a light dusting but really? I am not ready for this!! I was just adjusting to fall but hopefully things will heat up a bit. Gotta love Minnesota!! Hope everyone is doing great!!

Lots of love from me to you!!
