This was an accessible caramel recipe and was absolutely delicious!

The flavor of the caramel was wonderful. We rolled some in nuts, some in Heath bits, and some in chopped chocolate chips. Everything was great except the Heath bits;made it too sweet. This is a great recipe and I will make it again.

You have to wash/spray apples in very hot water for a minute or 2 to get off waxy film from grocery store...then caramel will stick! :)

There is only one problem - how do you get the heavy spray off of the apples that they use to preserve them. The caramel will not stick of you don't get this off.

Followed the recipe except I chopped some peanuts to roll them in - they didn't stick to the wax paper that way. Caramel was perfect, not hard, not too soft. My family loves them and I will be making these again! :)
