We love caramel apples. So when we saw this picture on Pinterest, we decided to try to make these ourselves!
Looks yummy, right?? Since we were having a picnic today, we thought these would make the perfect dessert! So, I pulled a container of my homemade caramel from the fridge so it would get soft.
Next, I scooped the center from the apples and got a tasty bowl of apple bites for a snack last night!
Finally, I filled the apple halves with caramel, put them in the container, and set them in the fridge. The idea was that they would set and I would slice them just before our picnic!
So far, so good! Fast forward to just before lunch today. I took the container out of the fridge and the apples & caramel were watery & brown. They were also mushy and had a bitter taste to them.
I'm calling it a semi-fail because they were really good last night. Word of warning though- DON'T MAKE THEM AHEAD!!
