My 10yo and I had a blast making several batches of caramel apples. But, I'm glad I read the reviews. There are a few elements of the recipe which are important to note. 1) Don't buy expensive caramel from the German company. Get the cheaper stuff from the company who also sells the blue box of mac & cheese. It melts best. Plus, the German stuff slowly falls down the apple sides. 2) Boil water to quickly remove wax from the apples, then wash them with soap and dry with paper towels. 3) While waiting for the caramel to melt, store apples in the fridge. 4) Be sure to wait for the caramel to cool (and thicken) a bit before rolling the apples. 5) Even if you use wax paper on the cookie sheet, ALSO use non-stick spray. The caramel will stick to the wax paper.
It was a real hardship to eat the "mess ups". :) Enjoy!
