I LOVE caramel and apples!! The only thing that would have made this better is if I had a bowl of chopped pecans nearby to dip my apples in...after they were dipped in the caramel!
This caramel is delicious!! It is easy, but does take a lot of time and patience. It is SO worth it!! I put some in half-pint bottles and sent them to school with the kids for their teachers with one red and one green apple to go with it.
This would also be delicious on ice cream! I slightly adapted the recipe from this one.
