Christmas time is hands down my favorite time of year. I’ve always loved Christmas but when I became a mother that love increased by a million. Seeing the magic of everything holiday inspired through the eyes of my girls is the most special thing. I’d have 10 more kids if I was guaranteed the reaction I get out of them was the same as it is for the 2 girls I have now (and if kids didn’t cost so much money… and I was 10 years younger, but that’s a different story)!
To spread some holiday cheer the girls and I decided to make some special candy coated Caramel Apples and deliver them to some of our neighbors. I’m a huge advocate of teaching my girlies that Christmas is about giving not just getting. What’s Christmas time without spreading a little love?!
I’m not much of a baker (besides boxed baking) so these apples were the perfect fit for my lack of cooking talent. They were so easy to make my 4 year old could almost do it all by herself!
- 6 Apples – we used granny smith apples
- Craft sticks
- 1 bag wrapped Carmel Pieces
- NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Morsels
- NESTLÉ® Stand Up Bags Butterfinger Bites broken into pieces
- 2-3 TBS Milk
Pull steams off the apples, wash, dry, and press craft stick into the top center.
Unwrap the caramels place in microwave safe bowl with 2-3 TBS milk and microwave for 2 minutes, stirring half way through. I used 3 TBS milk to get a better consistency of the caramel. Let cool for 30 seconds then twirl your apple in the caramel mixture.
Voila! Thats it! Let them dry on a coated cookie sheet for a few minutes and they are ready to gift, store, or eat right up!
