All-Day Apple Butter
So good!! I had mine done in about 7 hours because I was really excited and couldn't wait the 11+ hours. lol I kept my crock pot on high for about 3 hours and then turned it to low for the remainder. I used a blend of Pink Lady and Gala apples so I cut the sugar back to 2 cups. I recommend tasting all along the way and adjusting the sugar and spices as needed. Amazing! Never would have guessed that it was so easy!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies
These were some of the best brownies I have ever had! I halved the recipe and baked them in a 11x7 pan for a shorter time (25 min). They were a huge hit, everyone loved them!! The first time I made them, I forgot the chocolate chips and they were delicious. The second time, I remembered the chocolate chips and they were amazing! So much better than a box mix, but just as easy to make.

Caramels
This is my first time making caramel and they came out sooo good! I was a little scared to attempt these, especially without a candy thermometer, but after reading almost every review I decided to go for it and make a half batch (just in case). I started the mix in my pot on low-med heat and set my timer for 45 minutes, planning on it taking longer than that. I stirred pretty much the whole time, only letting the mix sit for no longer then about 20 seconds. Towards the end, the caramel will be thicker in the pan. Because I didn't have a thermometer, I used the ice water trick and it worked awesome! Just drop a little of the caramel into a bowl of really cold water, wait a few seconds and then fish out the caramel and feel what the texture is. I took mine off the heat when the caramel in the water felt smooth and firm, but easily pliable. Dumped the caramel into a buttered foil lined 7 x 11 pan and let it cool before cutting. (PS - Do not use foil! Even buttered, I still had some sticking. Parchment is the way to go!) Cut the pieces with a nonstick pizza cutter, wrapped with wax paper. There are freakishly good!!
