Caramel Apples and a Lesson Learned

Happy Wednesday, lovelies! I adore when a simple project looks amazing...  Caramel apples are one of those treats that look really beautiful and are so easy to make.
Remy and Halle were my chief caramel unwrappers. 'Unwrap one, eat one' was the motto of the morning!

The finished product~ Lovely!
We used the easy directions right on the caramel package for dipping the apples, and the littles chose nonpareils and Halloween sprinkles for the toppings. I also chopped up some nuts for good measure. They had a great time from start to finish, and I was thankful that they were still in their pjs because it was super messy!  My one mistake was that I didn't refrigerate them overnight, and in the morning all the caramel had melted to the bottom of the sweet little cello bags I had put them in. I'm still a bit disappointed about that, but our friends were good sports and ate them anyway! (They know I'd be mean if they didn't, and no one wants me to stop making for them!)
