to make the caramel sauce, i just melted down tiny squares of caramel(unwrapping the caramels takes forever...it's nice to have a friend or sister or both help) and stirred in a little cream.
a caramel apple party
no season excites me the way fall does. i love the crispness of the air, the changing of the leaves and the distant sound of parents and coaches cheering at the soccer games. i embrace the season fully, buying pumpkin after pumpkin, lighting all the candles in the house and baking. the house smells of nutmeg, cinnamon and apples. one of my favorite things to do during the fall season is make caramel apples. i've been doing it for years now. this year i invited my sisters and a few girl friends over. we drank homemade apple cider spiked with whiskey and laughed while decorating our apples with caramel and other toppings. here's to fall!
