Growing up, my FAVORITE sweet treat was a caramel apple. My mom would take me to a place called Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and buy me one every so often, and to me, there was nothing better. The two years I wore braces were pure torture and the day I got my braces off, my dad had a caramel apple waiting for me. It was heavenly.
Still, to this day, Caramel apples are my favorite indulgence. This is true. It doesn't bother me in the least to take a big bite and have all those caramel apples juices run down my face. This isn't a dessert to eat with good manners. Out the window. That gooey caramel with the tartness of the apple. Might just be the best thing I ever ate.
It's only natural, knowing me, that I would set out to create a caramel apple recipe that would be even better than I remember.
I can honestly say I have achieved that!
