Crafty in the kitchen making caramel apples

Today was another crafty day in the kitchen as my beautiful Maisie Miao Miao made caramel apples.

IMG_1559eFor Maisie it wasn’t about making a gorgeous homemade caramel or fancy ingredients, it was about the fun of being with Mom in the kitchen, dipping apples in caramel that tastes good to her and putting on lots of extra chocolate bits and nuts.  It was the fun of the activity that made my girl so happy

IMG_1537eMaisie decided that she wanted the apples rolled in a mix of semi sweet chips, cinnamon chips, white chocolate bits and milk chocolate bits along with some Winter Spiced Nuts, . 

IMG_1543eMaisie debating about how many chips and nuts would really be needed on the apples as she performs a little quality control taste testing.

IMG_1544eMaisie carefully dipped the apples.
