1st of all, I am honored to be the 1st to rate this recipe! It had a picture perfect photo with extreemly easy directions & simple ingredients. I questioned whether mine would turn out as shiny as the apples in the photo.....But it came out exaaaaaactly like the ones in the photo! I used 3 Large Fuji apples (because they're firm & crunchy especially for chicken salads). The caramel had a perfect texture to sink your teeth into, but also was firm (not too messy/gooey or sticky when set). Next time I will get 2 bags of carmel & put it all in a slow-cooker w/ those plastic slow-cooker disposable liners; dip the apples right in the slow-cooker & toss the liner out "no mess to clean up!"I have a talkative 3yr old & a busy 2yr old with Autism...right now it's 11pm and this was such a PERFECT late night treat for me...as busy mother!!! Thank You

This recipe is sooo easy! I used 6 Macintosh apples and instead of popsicle sticks I used plastic forks (much easier and sturdier for little hands). "Gramma, can you make more?"

I really liked this recipe! I just changed it a little by looking up on allrecipes.com the caramel apple video and followed those steps, but followed this recipe. I sold a few of these for $4 each, and I made $52!! This is highly recommended!!!
