Pinterest: Finally a success

This picture inspired me, I mean….caramel apples=yum!  They’re just kinda messy and awkward, this looked “doable”.

This Pinterest photo removed the alcohol from the original, so I chose this one.

I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest.  Apparently you need some kind of serious “attention-to-detail” gene and I might be missing that.  Whatevs.  Either way, I am completely inspired by Pinterest and in the next few weekend Hubby and I are going to tackle an outdoor project off Pinterest…(post to come, I’m sure), but as far as fancy food work…meh….I’m at 50/50 right now.  Prior to the apples we had the following disaster…..

Prior Pinterest debacle….

What it was “supposed” to look like…

The weather was fab last night, Hubby got the fire pit going, we had dogs on the grill, marshmallows over the fire, I figured we’d give this caramel apple deal a whirl.  Overall not bad….sadly, Pinterest only shows the pretty.  I’m here to show you the REALZIE.  Enjoy & have a great day!!

I don’t have a corer (and don’t send me one…I have an apple slicer and that’s great…for this a paring knife was fine to removed the core and then I scooped a little of the apple out of the middle to make a reservoir for the caramel sauce.

Bubble, bubble boil and trouble…THIS recipe was O. My. Goodness. Reason to wear stretchy pants #3001…

That’s right. Guts of the apple. Pinterest doesn’t show you this!!

Fill ’em up. I used a muffin pan to keep them level and catch some of my spillage

Set them in the fridge for a bit and then slice with a sharp, wet knife. Voila!
