MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 24, 2014

"I just made a double batch! After making these three separate times I realized I needed to double it because they disappear so quickly. Instead of cutting caramels I used a bag of the Kraft caramel bits ( minus the few handfuls I threw in my mouth ). These are absolutely delicious!!!!"

MY REVIEW

"I quartered the caramels and doubled the apples. My gosh, when they first come out of the oven and have cooled out of the pan for an additional 10 minutes....just enough to be able to handle them, these are incredible! The caramel does ooze out! But watch out once they cool! They are still moist and delicious, but the caramels harden and can crack your teeth! I will make these again, but try the caramel bites that reviewers are talking about."

MY REVIEW

"Delicious! They stuck to the papers sometimes so I might try just making them without papers next times and spraying the pan well. Everyone loved them."

"Sounds lovely but don't exactly relish chopping caramel - might try fudge chopped up instead."
