I am so overwhelmed by the pure kindness so many of you poured out to me after my post earlier this week. It just further emphasizes how tight-knit an online community can be, and how we are not alone in our struggles one bit. Thank you from the depths of my heart for being so heartfelt and sincere in your comments, texts, and emails – I am one lucky girl to have connected with you, and will be taking the time this weekend to respond to each one of your comments with the same attention and care that you gave your note to me. Lots of hugs to you guys.
I am here with another recipe for you this week, a double feature! How exciting. I will be forgoing my Saturday Mix posts, although we have had a great run for the past six months, to embark on another little series I will be introducing to you soon. But for today, we have these caramel apples I made in partnership with the lovely people over at VSCO for their Max Journal. This specific journal is all about discovery and growth for young women, and I feel so honored to contribute to their page. Although I’ve included some images here to woo you with, the entire recipe is available if you pop over to their site here.
A few notes in order to make this recipe as stellar as possible: make sure your apples are wax-free and completely absent of moisture. The tiniest bit of water on the apple will make the caramel seize (speaking from experience here). Also, this caramel apple is all about a thin layer of caramel, followed by a good dip in melted dark chocolate after the caramel has cooled on the apple in the fridge, and a handsome roll in crush pretzels (I use spelt pretzels by Newman’s Own to keep it wheat free). The flavors in this treat are totally back flip worthy. The kind where you take one bite, and before you know it the entire apple is gone – whoops! But that’s okay, it is fall after all. – xx
