The Scent of Fall

and Caramel Apples are in the air!
{this is a re-post from 9-23-08, so yummy, it's worth sharing again! Enjoy!}

With the new season here, it's time for new afternoon snacks. And what better snack than (mini) caramel apples?!

These are perfect for snacks (and less junk in the tummy too).

Here is a step-by-step guide to get you started on your own scrumptious snack!

1. Using your melon baller, scoop out apple balls and pat them dry. Be sure to have skin on a part of the apple as that will act as the bottom. Insert your toothpick and pat again to clean up any juice that may have come out.

2. Prepare your caramel as instructions require. (Set out your toppings so they are ready to go). Now dip your apples and cover them as much as you desire.

3. Immediately dip your caramel apple into the topping of your choice.
4. Arrange them to take pretty pictures. Then place in the fridge for about 1/2 an hour so the caramel will set.

5. Eat and enjoy! (there was so much enjoying I forgot to take a picture of that!) :-)
