The Easy One

Want a really easy caramel recipe?

Well, when I say, "easy", I don't mean free of labor.

The technique is simple. The unwrapping of each packaged caramel is annoying and slightly time consuming, BUT, the rest is downhill.

However, if you want the real experience of strenuously stirring the pot with beads of sweat forming and frequently hyper-overanalyzing whether or not the caramel has reached the soft ball stage, then I suggest diving into something like this. A bit more hairy, a bit more involved, and even a tad more tricky than this one I post today.

Either way, you'll end up with an apple slimmed over in rich caramel. I won't complain!

We ate these this last weekend with family while watching our favorite local University football team cream the opponent. Both experiences were quite sweet.

Simple Caramel Apples
{All Recipes dot com}

6 Granny Smith apples
6 wooden sticks
14 ounces of packaged caramel candy, unwrapped
2 Tbsp water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Wash apples, pat them dry. Insert each with a wooden stick and place them on a foil-covered cookie sheet.

Combine the caramels and water until smooth and the candies are melted (you'll want to be continually stirring this). Gently add vanilla extract and take each apple and drizzle caramel all over each. Place on foil-covered cookie sheets. Chill until ready to serve.
