So after an incredible fail yesterday, I got up early and tried to tackle this one more time. After an hour of undivided attention and stirring, here is the finished product. And it was a success!!! THIS is the caramel that the beloved caramel apples from somewhere like Oak Glen are covered in. Now that I know how to do it, I will be going back to the caramel apple drawing board.
But what to do with this pile of chewy caramels I have sitting on my counter??? Oh well, I am sure I will figure something out.
