“Food & Fun,” Friend, November 2018
Cut red, yellow, or green paper into strips 1/2 inch (or 1.25 cm) wide, cutting along the short side of the paper.
Glue the middle of the strips together, crisscrossing them so they make a star shape. Write something you are thankful for on each point of the star.
Turn the star over so the words are facing down. Then glue the ends together to form a ball.
Add leaves and a stem. Now put your apples somewhere to remember what you’re grateful for!
3 large apples
1 pound (454 g) chewy caramel candies
1/4 cup heavy cream
toppings (like crushed nuts, coconut, or pretzel crumbs)
With a small melon baller or spoon, scoop out round balls from the apples and pat dry. Insert a toothpick into each ball.
Put the caramels and cream in a pan and cook on low heat. Stir occasionally until smooth.
Dip each apple ball completely into the melted mixture. Then dip into ice water for 6 seconds.
Dip the apple ball into your topping of choice and pop it into your mouth!
