I'm a day late and a dollar short. (Anyone know where that saying is from?!)

At least I'm a day late for celebrating Caramel Apple Day, which this blog claims was October 21 (i.e. yesterday).

Apparently it's not the national holiday, just a regular holiday, so no worries.

According to some sites the national caramel apple holiday is October 31, so we have time.

Anyway, I planned this post in my apple series to align with the holiday and then I got my days mixed up, which I tend to do. We can still eat caramel apples any day right?

I never really much cared for actual caramel apples because they are so difficult to eat. Maybe I just haven't learned the right strategy?

For these caramel apple slices, cut an apple in half and scoop out a little of the center. You can add lemon juice to prevent browning if you want, but you're just gonna put caramel in there so I didn't see a point.

Then pour caramel in the middle. Pretty simple. I used pre-made caramel, but you can get fancy and make homemade caramel if you want.

Then just refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes or so.

Slice them up and eat! These still tend to be a little messy, especially if you're impatient like me and don't let them all harden enough. You might even want to pop them into the freezer for 10 minutes before eating.

Eat them fast! Someone else might get to them first. Or also as likely, caramel melts everywhere.
