Rocky Road Caramel Apples Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 3)
Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
I converted the recipe to make 16 apples & found that by adding only about 1/2 the water called for to the chewy caramel candies really seemed to help. The toppings still began to slide towards the bottom of the apple but not nearly so much as it appears to have done for others using this recipe. I also found that by only doing a few at a time & then putting them immediately into the fridge seemed to help the caramel & toppings hold their place. As for the chocolate drizzle, I melted semisweet chocolate chips with a bit of whole milk to thin out the chocolate slightly & waited for it to cool a little. Then I put it into a thick ziploc freezer bag, snipped a tiny hole in the corner & piped it back & forth after the rolled apples had already chilled in the fridge. I was able to take these to work & got a number of rave reviews, everybody seemed to really enjoy them & it was a great project for my young son to help with.

The same thing happened to me. Mine look ugly. But after all the work, I brouht them into the office party anyway. Everything slid to the bottom. And I discovered I have no idea how to drizzle chocolate. It's in giant clumps all over the apples. I hope my co-workers can get past how ugly they look. I would have liked some tips in the recipe.

These tasted great and get 4.5 stars for that. however, they didn't look pretty. after i dipped my apples in the caramel and got the excess caramel off i rolled it in the nuts but once i sat them down. the caramel and nuts slid to the bottom of the apple. so i ended up with a pile of caramel nut goo around the bottom. I was planning on giving these to co-workers for halloween, but not now.
