Believe it or not, I have never had a caramel apple. However, it is something I would love to try. I wonder if making them is a good activity to do with a 2 year old? I don’t think it would be messy at all (sarcasm with rolling of the eyes here). But that’s the fun of it so if we do, I will be sure to let you know how it goes!
The original recipe calls for melted caramels to drizzle on the frosting. I used caramel ice cream topping since I had it for the frosting. It ended up oozing down the sides of the cupcake rather than staying put on the frosting. It makes for a sticky mess. This may not happen if you do use actual caramels.
