Y’all, if anyone knows who stole the sun from the south could you kindly ask for its return?
I think it’s been at least 2 weeks since the sun has appeared for more than a few 5 minute teasers.
And that’s just dang depressing. Throw in a hurricane and it’s time for some other form of sunshine! So we are treating this Monday like a Friday and cheering up with some salted caramel apples.
Cheers to sunshine for everyone! That’s it.
Salted Caramel Apples
- 9 medium apples stems removed, washed, and completely dry - I used honeycrisp - see the update note below
- 2 bags of Kraft caramel squares
- 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
Heat caramels according to package instructions
Insert a stick into the top of each apple
Dip apples into caramel, turn to coat, let excess drip while continuing to turn and scrape the bottom of the apple on the side of the pan
Transfer to a wax paper lined baking sheet
Drop a couple of pinches of sea salt while the caramel is still warm
Repeat with the rest of the apples
Refrigerate to set
UPDATE: I forgot to add that I made these last year and all the caramel slid off – epic disaster! Some apples have a wax coating which I believe was the cause. I saw Giada remove the wax by boiling 6 cups of water with 1/4 teaspoon of white vinegar and adding the apples for 4 seconds each. I didn’t have the epic fail this time, so I recommend it.
