HELP Meredith HELP!

About a week ago our ward had it's annual Super Saturday. My friend Meredith was teaching a class on how to make candy caramel apples. The apples they made were works of art, so pretty and perfect, you know the kind that you pay $10 for from those fancy catalogs. I unfortunately was not able to take the class but I've been drooling over seeing them for the last week. So I decided to buy some stuff and we would try making them at home. How hard can it be right?? Well I didn't calculate 3 silly boys and a goofy dad to mess up my "martha" moment but we had fun anyway.
It started out okay, I was giving a demonstration of how to roll your apple in the caramel, that's the last thing I remember.....


Next thing I know the boys are on the counter sampling all the goodies to put on the apples...




It was so hilarious what a crappy job we were all doing decorating these apples that we were laughing so hard. I seriously almost peed my pants. I haven't laughed that hard for a while.



Mmmmmm.......apple, caramel, butterfinger, heath bar, nuts, white chocolate.....did I miss anything??


So Gross!!! I think Travis is the only one that ate more than one bite of their apple.

Here are some samples of the finished product...yummy....maybe I should start a home based caramel apple business.....maybe not!

I just can't get over how quickly your kids have grown! Your boys are so big! And Sadie is just a doll, what a cutie! Looks like you guys had such a great weekend, pumpkin patch, buffet lunch, and then making caramel apples?!? You are my hero! Are they as difficult as I think they are? I love the Rocky Mountain Chocolate factory's caramel apples but think it's absolutely ridiculous to pay big bucks for them!!
