Caramel Apples

Ever since the wedding, I've been on a new-found kick to build community, connection, commitment, and fun.

I think my next project in this vein is going to be...

Caramel apples for the neighbors!

Here's the recipe I'm going to use from allrecipes.com:


  • 6 apples
  • 1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons milk


1. Remove the stem from each apple and press a craft stick into the top. Butter a baking sheet.

2. Place caramels and milk in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave 2 minutes, stirring once. Allow to cool briefly.

3. Roll each apple quickly in caramel sauce until well coated. Place on prepared sheet to set.

You've inspired me. I'm very introverted and therefore have refused (yes, refused) to have gotten to know our neighbors in the new building we are at. Perhaps I should stop being so lame...

Aw, BIP, you should definitely make the effort. Ultimately, I'm really shy, too. But it's so worth it. We've become such a nuclear society--most of us are in our little nuclear families. The connection and the community make the world seem so much more welcoming and interesting. Cheesy, but true!

Not entirely related to the post...but are you aware it's Blog Action Day (blogactionday.org) today? The topic is poverty and it strikes me that as someone who had a wedding based on the true meaning of marriage rather than money, you'd be an ideal person to blog about it.

Thanks so much for the heads-up, Niuserre. I had never heard of Blog Action Day until you mentioned it. Thanks! I hope you enjoy the post...
