How PERFECT is this for Halloween!?
Haven't tried it yet but I mean to this weekend.
Ooh, no, can't agree on this one rainey. I love the traditional look of dipped apples. (The little "stand" at the bottom that holds them at a jaunty haunty tilt.)
It looks a tricky job to hollow out an apple, and the caramel would have to be *just right*, soft enough to chew, firm enough to stay wedge-shaped in the apple slice. I know I couldn't get that right -- at least not before the doorbell started ringing Oct. 31.
But mostly, when I eat a caramel apple I rely on the underlying actual *apple* to get the candy off my teeth! :)
Smart! This would take care of all the reasons I don't eat/make caramel apples:
1) dipping and making the caramel stick can be tricky
2) I can't get my mouth around it to get a good bite
3) a whole apple is too big
4) you don't end up w/ apple and no caramel
It occurred to me that you could do the same w/ peanut butter filling, too, like the center of a buckeye. I'd also leave more apple and just barely core it.
