caramel apples are one of the easiest fall treats to make, yet they are one of the tastiest. we were craving caramel apples last night but we were tired, so instead of taking the time to make our own caramel, we just melted down the little pre-packaged caramel cubes. we used gala, fiji, and macintosh (my favorite) apples. normally we would go crazy decorating the apples, but we decided to just keep it simple and add some crushed peanuts. on a fall evening, nothing beats the pairing of a tart apple with sweet caramel and salty peanuts.
these apples may not be picture perfect (by the end we ran out of enough caramel to actually dip the apples in, so we had to sort of drizzle it on) but they sure are tasty!
