Apple Week #5-6 Our First Disaster

Friday was Cannon's day and he had BIG plans. His original plan was to scrap out the entire inside of and apple and replace it with melted chocolate chips so that when you bit into the apple you would be surprised and it would really be chocolate. Scraping the inside of an apple out proved to be quite difficult. So he changed his plan to slice the apple and then carve out a little bit and fill it with chocolate, once again the carving out the apple slice seemed an impossible task. So he decided just to chocolate dip the apples. So he puts his chocolate chips in the microwave.

Many minutes later he takes them out and they are a huge clump of hardish chocolate goo. We tried to spread it on the outside of the apples but it looked pretty gross so we thought sprinkles might help because sprinkles makes everything better

...except chocolate goo slathered apples.

Saturday morning attempt #2. Carmeled apples.
Unwrap carmels

All 4 big Fehries are helping.

Taking the stems off of the apples turned into "What is the first letter of the person you are going to marry?" Cannon got D, Cash got Q, Kai got G and Viv got H.

Add some vanilla

Ouey Goey Carmel! Yes that is a gladiator hat in the background, Kai puts it on first thing every morning.

Well I think second try was charmed!

Plain Caramel Apples

6 Granny Smith apples
6 wooden sticks
1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Insert wooden sticks 3/4 of the way into the stem end of each apple. Place apples on a cookie sheet covered with lightly greased aluminum foil.
2. Combine caramels and water in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring often, until caramel melts and is smooth. Stir in vanilla extract. Dip each apple into the caramel and gently run apples around insides of saucepan to scrape off some of the caramel. Scrape excess caramel from the apple bottoms using the side of the saucepan. Place on the aluminum foil and chill until ready to serve.
