It really was a good project for little kids. They could stab the apples with the sticks, unwrap all the caramels, hypothesize about what would happen to the caramels in the microwave, spread butter on their waxed paper, and put their apples in the bowl. I melted and spread.
Raw, abandoned joy.
Oh, what a gift. Please Lord, may I only encourage this.
Look at this precious girl!
No caramel for her. :)
Her eyes are getting better, but still puffy and they will be red for weeks.
B.T.W...I found it strange that Wal-Mart had no caramels. We actually used a cream-centered caramel candy. It works fine, in case you run across the same issue.
