Crispy, juicy and covered with chocolate...

Back in December when my son was in luthier school he lived with a friend of mine. So as a Christmas gift and huge 'Thank You!' I got her the gift of Nom! because even though I gave my kid food money he waited for Shelly to get home and feed him.

Don't know if you remember the post but one of the things I sent her was Mrs. Prindable's apples because:

A.  They are rockin' crazy delicious and...
B.   I buy them every year for friends and
3.    um, I also buy them for myself if we are telling all and...
D.   They are a gift that is always appreciated because they aren't the kind of things people order for themselves... Well, okay I do but most people don't seem to although, why not?  Seriously.

So when MomImpact offered to send me a Mrs. Prindable's apple free I was all, omg you're seriously going to send me one free and it's not even my birthday and whoa and omg and...

 Yeah, clearly an undignified reaction, I know.  But look at them...


They come in that pretty purple box with a ribbon and are as big as my head...

Okay, I'm only kidding about them being big as my head.  But for real, look how big the Jumbo is....


Four and a half inches of three kinds of chocolate and caramel-covered apple, People!

And the apples are heavenly.  I realized something else about them because I was actually paying attention this time instead of just glomming all that deliciousness down - The caramel tastes exactly like homemade caramel.

I tried to make homemade caramel once. The homemade stuff tastes so much better than commercial stuff but it's kind of a pain to do and I never made it again - As a result I never experienced that buttery sweet taste again until I was eating the apple.  The caramel around that apple tasted JUST like it was made by a little grandma in my own kitchen and just for me.

But I have to stop now because my Mrs. Prindable's apple is gone....


Of course Mother's Day is coming...

Moondoggie and Babes - serious Nom! I'm so not kidding. If you have to give gifts for like your hair dresser at the holidays, or teachers... or neighbors. Perfect. I also buy them to have around for people who give me gifts that I'm not expecting - than I have a gift to give them back.

Plus I just like to eat the ones I don't give away so I try and buy lots and lots of extra ones ;)

oooo, those look yum. and if you want an easy way for home made caramel: get a can of sweetened condensed milk, place in pan, cover with water (yes the unopened can), boil for 3 hrs (check often to make sure it stays covered) let cool for 2-3 hrs, open enjoy. try not to eat the whole can on your own with a spoon. I like to add this in dollops to brownies when I make them.

J, you seriously just boil the can and it will not explode? You promise?

Cause I will so do that, like this week if you promise I will not have it all over the ceiling.

I have never seen those things in the UK and that is almost a crime. They looking like they could even satisfy my sweet tooth.

I promise, I have done it myself, and then eaten half the can (SHHHH)
