This past weekend my children wanted to make Carmel apples .OK sound like fun. So we made the Caramel from scratch , which was pretty easy. But i should of read the directions at the bottom of the recipe how to prepare the apples if they were store bought. Store bought apple have a very thick coat of wax on them. So the Carmel did stick to well to the apples but it was fun. after making the apples we took all the left over Carmel ,candies,nuts and toffee and mixed it all together and made a very large candy bar.
