well, i guess it's fall season.
not around here in florida.
and summer heat galore.
so yesterday was summer.
today is summer,
and tomorrow will be summer.
summer summer summer.
ugh. ugh. ugh.
well, this fall girl will have to make up for the heat with a caramel apple treat.
but not just any caramel apple,
let's make it with fudge ok?
and let's make 'em mini to boot:
yes you are seeing that right.
and not an apple at all.
it just takes a few ingredients
and freezing and decorating.
here we go:
the only reason i used caramel condensed milk is cuz my regular kind were expired...
since january 2016...uhoh!
so i had this caramel one that was still good
and i said a caramel apple prayer that it would work.
so like it says above, all you have to do is nuke the milk and chips together at 30 second intervals and stir til melted.
and yes-put that small bowl of
80% melted caramel fudge on the side.
you'll see why in a sec, so don't mind the
chips in there that still need melting.
so for the rest of the fudge,
melt that completely and,
i was quite tickled when i colored the caramel red,
thinking i was gonna get a funky color
but yahoo it worked!
so next,form into mini apples,
or mini blob thingies pretending to be apples like i did:
freeze these blob apples for about an hour til nice and firm.
now it's time to mess with the
small bowl of caramel and melt til smooth,
take your blob,
dip it as shown, and place to dry.
you'll have to move quickly when you grab your apple
cuz the warmth of your hands can make indentations.
no worries if it does,
just cover with more caramel as shown below
and add the details.
and there ya go.
mini caramel apples for
summer fall season
in miniature size so you don't have to worry about waste.
(cuz goodness eating a real caramel apple fills you up
doesn't it? or at least it does for me and i never finish it unless i share)
but no sharing will be needed here,
well, at least for one apple eating.
unless of course they give you a quarter...?
(lol just wanted to show you the size of these)
happy apple season everyone! :)
