Ratings & Reviews





Never need to use Wax Paper AGAIN!!!!! Fill your pan with enough granulated sugar to cover the pan... Your apples will not stick to the pan!!! did it tonight.. its AMAZING


made this for our halloween food day, was a success


Stick with 2 Tbsp of water. To avoid sticking, use Glad Press and Seal, smooth side up, keeping the sticky side away from the caramel. It came off real easy once they were fully cooled. Also great for wrapping them, if you are taking them out.


I made this recipe with my daycare kids. The first batch started off looking great but ended up too watery and most of the caramel came off. The second batch I put in only 2 tbsp of water and then put them immediatly in the fridge and they came out wonderful all the kids loved them. The secret with the waxed paper is that the caramel has to be dry to the touch before you remove them from the wax paper. Before that they will defiantly stick. Also, I had the kids dip them in mini white chocolate chips. What a Yummy desert.


These were incredibly popular when I made these as a take-home treat for my daycare. Not so much fun pulling the wrappers off all those caramels though. My own kids can't wait to make these again! Good idea for the slide foil, I used parchement paper, nothing seems to stick.


I really liked these. I used the new slide tin foil that nothing sticks to. Really worked great. Would definitely make it again.


I made these for Halloween for my neighbours kids - big disappointment when I went to wrap them - the waxed paper stuck to the apples and I couldn't get it all off!!! Made a 2nd batch and thought I would spray the waxed paper with veg. spray. Didn't work either!!! I doubt if I'd try them again.


I followed the directions and placed my apples on the wax paper and placed in the fridge. Today when I went to wrap them for my trick or treaters the wax paper has stuck to the bottom of my apples. I had to cut it off. My apples do taste good.


I liked this because it was very easy to make and the apples were great. Everyone loved them!




this is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The apples were easy and fun to make. Fun treat for any Halloween party and kids can take these to school without having to worry about any nut allergies!


Great recipe and very easy to make! My husband's birthday is Oct.31st and we had a dinner party and I used these as the nameplacer/favours. The table looked great and everyone enjoyed the sweet treat!



It was too chewy, I really didn't like it. Not goot for those with a denture!!


I made these to give out on Halloween. Couldn't have been easier! Tasted great with crushed peanuts.


This reminds me of my youth when my mother made these for us children, especially at Christmas time and on Birthdays!
