I’ve been coping with an obsession. And since we’re friends, it is my duty to forewarn you. What I am about to share may haunt you. And perhaps force you to spend a little extra time at the gym, as I have.
There, I said it. Whew.
What started as a simple exploration into caramel apples has launched a fixation on all things caramel. So if you bear with me, the next couple of posts will likely have a drizzle of caramel on top.
Let’s begin with caramel apples. I’m not like most people, whose love affair with this sweet on a stick began at an early age. Quite the contrary. I’ve admired them from afar, but never really had my first taste until I was an adult. Honestly, I simply don’t know how that happened, chalk it up one of my life’s anomalies. But with Halloween just around the corner, I had my heart set on making them, just because I could.
And let me tell you, it was worth the wait.
If you’ve never tried making caramel apples, I hope you carve out some time in your weekend to devoting yourself to a pool of gooey bliss. If the idea of using corn syrup alarms you as it does me, do not worry. The Caramel Apples I am sharing today on Wayfair.com uses a happier substitute with just a glossy results. The only thing you will have to decide is what is more fun, making caramel apples or eating them?
