Apples,Apples and More Apples can never get enough of apples.This fall I am really inspired and I will be trying new recipes like in the picture above .Those are my Caramel Apple Cookie Pops wow these are different in my eyes . I wanted to do caramel apples with real apples I just wasn’t into it so I went another way I am glad I did.These were easy and fun to make you and your kids.They would love  this because its kid friendly with parent supervision for the caramel .This is my homage to Halloween day . The best part is decorating the cookies with the caramel and putting candies,coconut or anything you want on them. These taste really delicious and not that sweet .You won’t be able to leave them alone after having one.So you if you have an apple imagination you can make just about anything apple.This beats bobbing for apples and besides that this is more fun.
