Testing...1,2,3


I don't know if I mentioned it here before but for our wedding favors we are giving out caramel apples.

Fitting with the 'rustic elegance' wedding theme don't ya think?

So, tonight was the recipe testing session. The came out pretty good!

learned a few things that will be helpful when I make them all for the wedding.....

-The recipe I had was for 10 apples, and even when I cut it in half it still made 10 apples, so I only need half the ingredients (sweet!).
-I used a touch too much sweet milk
-I should have used my smaller pot so it would have been easier to dip the apples in and get more of the apple covered.
-I should have let it cook about 3 minutes longer, just so the caramel could have hardened more.

Pretty glad I did this little run through! It'll make things easier when I'm making 100 caramel apples two days before the wedding!! LMAO!!
