Caramel apples are so fantastically easy to make… And they totally look difficult. So 10 points for Gryffindor, you look really clever and crafty when it’s all said and done.
But here’s what: it only takes three ingredients and three minutes “cooking” time to make them. Here’s a quick recipe, so easy:
Here’s what you need:
2 tablespoons of evaporated milk
50 unwrapped Werther’s chewy caramels. They’re the best.
Sticks of some kind. I used popsicle sticks.
Here’s what you’ll do:
Melt the caramels and milk in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave on high for 2 or 3 minutes, stirring frequently until smooth. Put sticks in the tops of apples. Dip the apples into the caramel mixture.
And then the fun part begins. Check it.

Cee Lo Rules. 9 of 11We love Cee Lo the most. And with a little more bling, this could transform into Mr. T, whom we love equally. Either way you can say you pity the fool who falls for other apples.
