This didn't work out for what we wanted to use them for. I'm really glad I did a test run on the recipe two days beforehand. I wanted to make them the day before a girl's birthday party, and then wrap them up in plastic or wax paper and gift them as takeaway gifts. But this caramel was soooo soft and sticky. I set the caramelled apple on wax paper to set, put it in the fridge for an hour, and then let it sit on the counter overnight. It was still horribly soft (I couldn't possible wrap it up) and stuck horrendously to the wax paper. My daughters didn't even want to try to eat it. Besides which, unwrapping all those caramels was a big hassle. I switched to a more traditional boil-sugar-and-butter-to-soft-ball-stage candy recipe, which worked better. I set the apples on cooking-sprayed Silpat sheet, and rolled them in sprinkles (to cover any stickiness and hopefully enable them to be wrapped). I give the recipe two stars because this might be a good choice to make with young kids that want to eat the apple right away. Good luck!
